Mrs. Susie Herman


Hi,  My name is Susie Herman and I am going to be your 5th grade teacher! This will be my 4th year teaching 6th grade, but my 19th year teaching at Harelson.  I love 6th grade and all the exploring, learning, and fun we get to have.

I have my teaching degree from the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire with a minor in Biology.  I enjoy teaching all subjects, but I love to teach math and science!  I love that both subjects open the doors to so many new ideas and thinking. 

I moved a lot growing up, but stayed in Wisconsin for the majority of my childhood. I love to go back and visit family and friends as often as I can.  

I can't wait to spend the next year learning and growing with you.

Defining Moment in Education

As a high school student I tutored Hmong students in various subjects.  This opportunity opened my eyes to the life changing experiences that I could offer to people.  There was one particular girl who I tutored in biology that shared stories from her culture that influence me greatly.  I have taken this singular experience and used it to influence my teaching.

Core Educational Belief

I believe that every student who enters my classroom can succeed. As a teacher, it is my duty to help students reach their full potential and gain the knowledge and skills that they will require in their daily lives.
