Teacher Feature: Natalie Skibinski, Kuehnle Elementary
There is no place like home, and for 5th grade teacher Natalie Skibinski, Klein is home!
“I was actually part of the very first 1st grade class at Kuehnle way back in the day. Once a Koala, always a Koala!” said Skibinski. “I am also proud to be a former Strack Cougar and a Klein Oak Panther. There was NO other choice for me to teach than Klein.”
Now, in her fourth year of teaching, Ms. Skibinski has become a mentor on her campus who models personalized learning, goal setting, and data tracking that are truly benefiting her students’ learning and achievement.
As a self-proclaimed forever learner, Ms. Skibinski hopes to pass on her love for learning to her students.
“Personally, I learn several new things every year I teach. I know I will never learn enough. I want my students to be excited to learn new things every year!”
To Ms. Skibinski, teaching is not just a job – it’s a passion!
“Every student in every class is unique, and as a teacher, you must try many different ways to reach each and every student. Teaching can break you down the same day it can build you up. You must love it to live it!”
