When you find your groove, you stick with it! Donna has taught all of her 32 years at Lowell Elementary School and taught first grade for all but seven years. Mrs. McCleod looped with students for six years, beginning in first grade and then moving to second grade. "I enjoyed looping with the same group of students. I was able to see the students grow academically, socially, and emotionally and truly get to know the students and families during the two years we looped together." Mrs. McCleod feels very fortunate that her teaching career has been at the same school. Her words of advice "Keep a journal of the things first graders tell you. Then, when you need a laugh, read it!" Congratulations, Donna McLeod!

As a Health Occupations Teacher, Health Occupations Co-op, and Youth Apprenticeship Coordinator for 25 years at Waukesha North, Waukesha South, and Waukesha West, Mrs. Hoeft has connected with many, many students! Fun fact! Before she became a teacher, Edie was a dental hygienist (and still is!) Teaching allowed her to teach students genuinely interested in helping people in the healthcare setting. Mrs. Hoeft said her favorite memories were made while taking students on engaging field trips and listening to them talk about how much they learned and loved the experience. Congratulations, Edie!
