Meet Mrs. Wusk
My name is Carrie Wusk and this is my tenth year teaching at Bennet Elementary. I will be teaching the third section of Kindergarten again this year. I am very excited to stay in Kindergarten and teach with some wonderful teachers!
I grew up in Sterling, and attended college at UNL, graduating with a dual bachelor's in elementary education and special education. I married my high school sweetheart (awww!), Mark, and moved back to Sterling. We have two beautiful daughters, Kaitlyn (21), who is a Junior in college at UNO, and Callene (17), who will be a Junior at Sterling Public Schools. After I graduated from college, I wanted to stay home with my "future" children, so I started a home day-care/preschool. Those fourteen years of day-care seemed to fly by and I realized my girls were in school, so now I could venture out and start my teaching career.
I substitute taught for a year, and at the end of that year was hired as a long term sub in the Bennet Kindergarten rooms. That spring I interviewed for the traveling teacher position here at Bennet and became the third section of 1st grade for the following year. Then I "moved on up" with those kiddos and taught 2nd grade for a year. After that, I was needed in Kindergarten, so I gathered my things and taught the littles for a year. Back to 1st grade I went, then on to Kindergarten! This will be the sixth year I get to stay in one grade and it is fantastically amazing!
I can't wait to see how the year unfolds. My hope for the kiddos is that they leave Kindergarten with confidence and excitement for another year of school. I am going to have a great time learning with your littles this year.
