Name: Sara Anderson

City: Sparta

News Tip: Mrs. Guns is one of the best teachers in Sparta.  Ask anyone.  When you hear anyone talking about her, they are smiling, talking positive or sharing a wonderful story they have because they have been in her classroom. She makes each student feel special . . and yes, every teacher should do this, but she has an extra special way of making them feel good about themselves.  She enjoys being with them, and they can feel it.  They know it.  Her theme this year is all about smiles, and happiness.  She has smiley faces covering her room. They remind the kids to think positive, and to “be happy”. But they hold a special place for Mrs. Guns as well, as smiley faces remind her of her mom, who passed several years ago, but wanted everyone to remember her with happiness in their heart.  In the end, former students visit her, hug her, and still love her.  She volunteers, coaches, remembers all of her students fondly, and makes each and every day, the best it can be for her “kiddos”.  She is one of the best Top Notch Teachers.

April Top Notch Teacher: Jackie Goetsch

Emerson Elementary teacher hosts ‘homework club’ to help students

This month’s Top Notch Teacher comes to us from Emerson Elementary in La Crosse. Second-grade teacher Jackie Goetsch is known for her upbeat, positive and can do attitude.

To Goetsch, the second graders in her class are much more than students.

“Here’s an easy one friends,” Goetsch said.

Being with her friends every day is something she’s wanted since she was their age.

“I had awesome teachers when I was young, I wanted to be like them when I grew up,” Goetsch said.

“She’s a good teacher,” second-grader Porter Ryan said.

“So I feel like I’ve been very blessed that I’ve been able to follow my dream and me passion to teach,” Goetsch said.

Goetsch started in the La Crosse district nearly 25 years ago and has dedicated lots of her time before school, after school and even on the weekends to making sure all of her friends live up to their potential.

“I do a homework club on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s with a small group of friends, just to give them some extra support. Usually math, writing, reading help,” Goetsch said.

With all the extra time spent helping her friends sometimes lesson planning gets pushed to the weekend, but that’s no a big deal.

“It’s all about making memories and the extra time that I put in is really devoted towards that,” Goetsch said.

Goetsch said teaching has always been her joy and passion and she doesn’t expect that to change anytime soon.

“I want my room, and I think it is one of my strengths, to be just the most comfortable and joyful environment for my kids so that they can learn because you can learn so much more and so much easier if you feel safe and happy,” Goetsch said.

Besides the homework club Goetsch does a program called books for breakfast where kids put on a reading show for their parents and siblings.

 

Why is 1:45 Important?

Fuel for thought from the NGV Guru:

nclock-01-45_33699_sm

 If your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) starts with a 1, 4, or 5, then your vehicle was manufatcured in the USA!

If your VIN starts with a 2, it is Canadian.  A 3 means it is Mexican.  The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) makes those American.

Don’t be misled by someone telling you their car is American and think it was USA manufactured.

We are proud of the high percentage of USA products that American Honda manufactures for Honda Motorwerks.
