Introduce yourself in one sentence, please
Hi! I’m Ms. Rubbelke. I taught MS math last year and I am teaching HS math this year!
How long have you been at AAS?
This is my second year at AAS.
Share something we do not expect to hear from you?
One of the first things I will do when I return home (Minnesota, USA) this summer is jump in Lake Superior (it’s about 18C on a warm day!).
What do you love most about your job?
I love seeing kids have their “lightbulb” moment. It’s rewarding to support kids as they persevere through difficult content and be there when they realize “I can do this.”
What would you be if you weren’t a teacher?
If you were to ask my friends, they would say I would either be an event planner or a professional organizer. I agree with them, but I would also add recipe tester to the list (one of my projects in quarantine was learning to make croissants).
What is the most important thing one has to learn at school?
Your choices outweigh your abilities, every time.
What would you say to your 13 year old self?
Call your grandparents.
Please recommend a book to read
The Overstory by Richard Powers or Circe by Madeline Miller.
