6th Grade Science
6th Grade Science
Hello! My name is Brook Tschetter and I will be teaching 6th grade Science.
After graduating from Huron High School, I pursued a degree in Education at Northern State University. During my time as an undergraduate, I completed a few different middle school teaching experiences. These experiences offered a contrasting outlook due to them being both in and out of the classroom setting. Aside from teaching, I enjoy being outdoors, and participating in different competitive activities.
I am excited to get this school year underway! Go Tigers!
6th Grade ESL
Hello! My name is Zach Kaderabek and I will be teaching 6th grade ESL Language Acquisition. I grew up in the Sioux Falls area. I attended University of Sioux Falls and graduated in the Fall of 2019. I spent the first few months subbing before the pandemic hit and then went back to work in childcare. I have a hobby of building and selling fishing poles. So at least when I'm sitting by the water's edge, not catching anything, I have a cool fishing rod to look at.
