Welcome to Sunrise Elementary, Grade 5
My name is Shannon Vetsch. I am thrilled to be your child's reading and writing teacher! This will be my 20th year teaching. I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Journalism and Spanish from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire in 1999 and a Master of Arts in Education from St. Mary's University in Winona in 2000.
I have a passion for teaching reading and writing. This year, I will expose your 5th grader to many genres of literature and encourage your child to write stories, poems and essays. I hope your child will learn to love to read and write as much as I do!
In our freetime, my family and I enjoy spending time together up north at our cabin. Activities that are fun for me include kayaking, golfing, going on pontoon rides and reading on the deck. This summer we spent our vacation time in Oregon exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
It's going to be a great year at Sunrise; I can't wait to meet you!
