Hello! My name is Mrs. Carey and I am Banting's ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher. This is my seventh year at Banting and my 11th year teaching in Waukesha, most recently as a dual language teacher in 5th grade. I love teaching in Waukesha and am so excited to work with the wonderful students and families of Banting! I previously taught in Milwaukee Public Schools and Central America. I graduated from UW-Madison (Go Badgers!) with a degree in Elementary Education, and received bilingual certification from UW-Milwaukee. I completed my Master's in Education with an emphasis in TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Other Language) at Edgewood College in Madison, and an elementary math certificate from Carroll University. My husband and I have 5 wonderful children and our dog, Teddy who keep us very busy. I am also a huge Badgers, Bucks, Brewers and Packers fan. Although I am a city girl, our family has a farm in Mineral Point, WI where we raise beef cattle and relax whenever we get a chance. I love to read, travel and spend time with my family. My biggest hope for my students is that they become life long learners and are excited to grow every day.
