Paula is an excellent teacher! She truly loves and respects her students, and they respond in kind. When you walk into her class, you can immediately see and feel that a strong culture for learning has been established. Classroom procedures are clear; the expectations are high. Mrs. Schulte keeps the students engaged and actively involved in the lessons. Paula does not shy away from new challenges or opportunities to learn. Public education can be very demanding, with new state mandates and a need to incorporate technology. She stays on the cutting edge; she is a lifelong learner! When asked how she does it, her response is “The kids make it easy to come to work!”
