Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Laurel Stueber
I have a B.A. degree in Elementary Education from St. Catherine University and an M.Ed. degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Minnesota.
I have been a Saint Paul Public Schools teacher since 1993.
I view teaching as an opportunity to enrich the lives of children. Every child has the ability to learn if placed in a nurturing environment where learning experiences engage students, meet their collective and individual learning needs and assist them in reaching or exceeding their goals. I want all children to be successful, enjoy the process of learning, and develop the skills needed to become lifelong learners.
I believe in:
providing a warm and positive classroom atmosphere
fostering enthusiasm for learning
treating each child as a valued and unique individual
using positive behavior management techniques
promoting cooperation, respect, self-esteem, and self-control
helping children develop as caring, self-assured, responsible people
encouraging creativity and individualism
helping children develop an awareness, understanding, and appreciation
of the rich diversity in our society
treating parents as partners in the education process
