This week, Freeland Learning Center is highlighting one of our 1st grade teachers, Mrs. Gwen Neering. Mrs. Neering is in her 4th year teaching in Freeland and in her 23rd year in education. She is always creating hands-on activities for the students to enhance their learning experiences as she is committed to engaging all types of learners in her lessons. She also inspires students to be kind to others and those serving or those in need in their community by reaching out to them with creative ways to show their appreciation and support.
When asked what she finds most rewarding about her position, Mrs. Neering said, “The most rewarding part of my job is seeing all of the first grade students’ smiling faces walking through my door every morning. First graders are amazing little people. They love learning and sharing what they know. It makes my heart happy to see the excitement in their eyes as we build the foundation for success for the school years to come.”
Mrs. Neering also shared that Freeland is an amazing place to work. Freeland parents are very supportive and actively involved in the educational process of their child. It is exciting to teach in a community where education is the top priority of all members within the district and in the community. I am very proud to have been chosen to be a part of the Freeland Community School District team.
Thank you Mrs. Neering for your dedication to the students and families of the Freeland Learning Center and for all you do for the Freeland Community School District.
