Ms. Polly Neumann

My name is Polly Neumann.  The students call me Ms Polly.  I am so pleased to be returning to Parkway for a second year.  I am a special education teacher who primarily co-teaches Pre-Algebra and Algebra.  I have taught for over 25 years and absolutely love working with middle school students.  For 2 years, I was the Positive Behavior Support Staff for an urban middle school in Madison, WI.
 
I grew up in Milwaukee and moved to Madison for a new position in retail management.  After having my 2 children, I decided that I wanted to do something that made a positive impact on society.  I attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison and graduated with a degree in Rehab-psychology and Special Education.  I have continued graduate studies at Concordia and Edgewood Colleges.  Teaching was an easy choice.  My father was a principal in Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS) and my mother was a para-professional for MPS.  I have 5 siblings who also worked for MPS, So the love of education runs in the family.
 
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, walking my dog and cooking.  My happy place, (when I am not in school), is any cabin on any lake.  
 
I am looking forward to another great year of learning and fun with your child/children.
