Mrs. Rimmel from Erie Elementary in the Chippewa Valley school district is the teacher I am nominating. She is one of the greatest educators I have ever encountered. I have 3 kids (15,8,5). My 5 year old, Jaclyn, currently has her in Kindergarten. As someone with experience in the first year of school, I can say that without a doubt, Mrs. Rimmel knows what she is doing. These children are learning very strong skills at such a young age. She is truly setting the foundation for their future. She is stern, loving and very special. She interacts with each child as they need and she teaches each one individually while in a whole group, if that makes sense.
Recently I had the opportunity to go on a cider mill field trip with the class. At that moment, I knew she had it going on. The 3 classes were asked to sit at a picnic table while they did a head count. I stood back, watched her say boys and girls, please SIT at the picnic table. These children all calmly sat while the other classes were in a slight bit of chaos. The respect they have for her is amazing for being a big group of 27 - 5 year olds.
