Natalie Shikoski: Grade 1 teacher
Hello and Welcome! My name is Natalie Shikoski and I am the new first grade teacher here at Altmayer. I’ve been teaching first grade for the past 8 years in the Green Bay Public School District. I grew up in De Pere and I went to De Pere High, so it’s good to be back home. I’m married with 3 children, and we enjoy hiking, biking, and boating together. But my favorite thing is horseback riding!
I am dedicated to my students and I consider them to be my school family. It is my philosophy to nurture the whole child; acting as a coach to build social skills as well as academic skills. I believe that every student can experience success in school by developing a network of effective problem solving strategies. It is my job to provide tools that will facilitate different and individual paths for learning. In my classroom, I foster a love of learning by giving children choices, appealing to their interests, and providing meaningful, fun experiences. I feel so honored and grateful to be part of the Altmayer team, and I welcome you to come talk to me any time!
