About Miss Sixel
My name is Katie Sixel, and I will be your child's multi-age teacher! I joined the Gibraltar School District after graduating from St. Norbert College in 2013.
I student taught third grade at Sunnyside Elementary in Pulaski, WI and kindergarten at McAuliffe Elementary in Green Bay, WI. Along with my student teaching experiences I have also traveled to New Orleans to worked with a third grade class and to Chicago to teach pre-K students. I enjoy integrating my lessons with forms of technology and thankful we have access to a variety of devices at Gibraltar! Along with using the Smartboard daily, I plan to incorporate iPads, laptops, and flip cameras into the curriculum as much as possible.
I graduated from UW-Madison with a Master's Degree in Educational Psycology in the Spring of 2017. The educational experiences and educators I met through attaining my degree have proved invaluable to my classroom as I continue my career in education. The importance of teacing my students about an inclusive and mindful classroom has transformed our classroom environment into a postive and welcoming place to learn.
I enjoy biking, walking, reading, bonfires, and surfing the web for great craft ideas on Pinterest! One of my favorite children's books is Enemy Pie! I look forward to learning with my students and families! If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at any time.
