My name is Deb Kuhlemeier. My husband, Brett, and I have lived in the Rudd area for many years. We have five children who have all attended RRMR. The school has many curricular and extra-curricular activities for students to take part in, which means the school and I are connected at the hip.
Teaching in the Rudd-Rockford-Marble Rock School District has given me the opportunity to work with students in grades K-6 on Reading and all subjects with 4th graders. In 1990, I was hired as a Chapter 1 Reading Teacher to work with students in grades 3-6. I then worked with just fourth graders, teaching all their subjects. Currently, I work on reading/literacy skills with our fourth, fifth, and sixth graders.
I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a BA in Elementary Education so that I can work with students in grades K-8. I also hold endorsements in Reading and coaching.
My philosophy is that my students and I are always learning. My classroom is a place where students should want to enter, work, and be successful. There is always more help that I can give. My work is never done as long as I'm a teacher.
