Degrees and Certifications:
Just so you know a little about me, my name is Olivia Krueger extremely excited for the start of the new year. I graduated from Boise State University with my BA in English and Education. I very much believe in student-centered education and making learners responsible for their knowledge. Most of what I do in the classroom involves critical thinking over memorization because I believe that those tools are far more useful for any discipline in the real world. I know not everyone can love reading and writing but those are two skill requirements that never go away, no matter what profession a person ends up in. My goal is to get my students proficient in these skills and hopefully manage to have a little fun along the way.
We will be implementing a new system of grading this year called Standards-Based Grading. We hope this will help our students succeed in the classroom and give more opportunites for student-centered learning.
