Sallie Mesker

Support Teacher

Kindergarten support teacher Ms. Mesker looks forward to the moment when a student she’s working closely with shows all kinds of progress and growth. She especially likes to teach young children the social emotional skills they need to succeed.

Impacting Students
A lot of what I learned in responsive classroom has had an impact on my students, for example everyday strategies such as starting the day beginning with a morning meaning. Morning meetings are so important because they create structure and consistency for the students and they allow me to create a classroom community, set daily expectations and set the tone for the day.

Lifelong Learner
Professional development with Responsive Classroom has had the most impact on my teaching practice.

Favorite Teaching Moment
Not one specific moment- but any time I'm working with a student who is struggling with a concept or lesson then I finally see it click with them!

Life Goal
Ride in a hot air balloon.
