A little bit about me
While growing up in the Waupun - Alto area, I was inspired to become a teacher by my high school German and English teacher who was “cool” and nurtured my love for reading, writing and languages. My father is an immigrant from Friesland (The Netherlands) and spoke a couple different languages. This, and knowing that "Anita" is the Spanish form of the name "Ann" inspired the desire to learn Spanish.
My educational background
After graduating from high school, I attended Trinity Christian College near Chicago, Illinois, where I became interested in Corrections. I went weekly to the Cook County Jail and tutored inmates who were taking classes. After returning to Wisconsin, I earned an Associate Degree in Corrections from MPTC, Fond du Lac after completing internships at Waupun Prison and Kettle Moraine Correctional Facility. I still wanted to teach, so I enrolled at Marian College of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, where I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in English, with minors in Secondary Education and Spanish.
In 2006 I finished my major in Spanish at Marian College and am now fully certified to teach Spanish at levels K-12. While at Marian, I did both clinical and student teaching at Laconia and loved the district! I've been teaching in the Rosendale-Brandon school district since 1990.
In the summer, I can often be found enjoying her flower garden or vacationing with my family at our cabin near Crivitz, Wisconsin. My husband, Dan, is the Village of Rosendale Public Works Director. Our three children keep us busy when we are at home. Nicholas, the oldest, is a Laconia graduate. Alex attends Rosendale Intermediate, and Jonathan is getting ready for school in a few years.
