For this issue of The Squire, the teacher spotlight has shined on Mrs. Rouse. Mrs. Rouse is a newer addition to Eisenhower, but many students have the pleasure of having her during their middle school years. Additionally, the past two junior classes have had the opportunity to have her as their class advisor. As a junior advisor, she has the responsibility of helping plan prom. For more information on prom, The Squire has published every article you need in preparation, so be sure to check them out.
The Squire wanted to learn a little bit more about what Mrs. Rouse is up to when she’s not busy helping to plan the most exciting dance of the school year.
The Squire: As an Eisenhower graduate, what made you want to come back to teach here?
Mrs. Rouse: This is my hometown and I love that this is where Mr. Rouse and I went and now our kiddos get to go here! Also, EMHS is clearly the best!
TS: What classes do you teach and why?
Mrs. R: I teach ELA and Social Studies. I slay at spelling and the world.
TS: Where did you attend college and what degree(s) did you obtain?
Mrs. R: I went to Edinboro University and earned a Bachelors in Early Childhood/Eled Education. I’m headed back this year to get my masters in Curriculum and Instruction! Yay me.
TS: What do you like to do in your free time, outside of school?
Mrs. R: We love to go camping! Beach trips! Backyard fires. Adventuring in the great outdoors!
TS: What is your favorite part about being a teacher?
Mrs. R: Summers off… wait, no, the kids. Definitely the kids!
TS: If you weren’t a teacher, what career would you pursue?
Mrs. R: I’d be a trophy wife for sure.
TS: What else would you like students to know about you?
