The Extended Learning Center is welcoming Sarah Dewey as a student teacher. She was born in Janesville, Wis., but grew up in the LaCrosse area, graduating from Luther High School, Onalaska.
She is double majoring in Early Childhood Education and Special Education. “I have always wanted to become a teacher, but my first visit to MLC really solidified that,” she says.
Because she’s an Early Childhood major, “really anything above 5th grade makes me nervous,” she says. But it wasn’t the students she was worried about. “I think the biggest thing was really not knowing the content and not being able to help the students,” she shared. In just a few days, however, she realized that she is equipped and “can help with any class.” It didn’t hurt that “it seems to be a family here at Lakeside. Everyone has been so welcoming.”
