Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Cate Riekkoff
It is my pleasure to be teaching third grade at Pewaukee Lake Elementary!
My education includes attending UW – Milwaukee for a bachelor degree in elementary education. I began teaching sixth grade in the Wauwatosa Public Schools and then taught third grade for twelve years. I took time off to spend with my daughters, but continued to be involved in education by substitute teaching at their school, volunteering on committees, and working with students in the Elmbrook Schools in the early reading intervention program. I then returned to full time in the Kettle Moraine School District teaching fifth graders at Dousman Elementary School. I traveled to New York two times to receive training in the workshop model of teaching for both reading and writing. Now here at PLE, I am so thrilled to be teaching third grade again! My two daughters and I live in New Berlin. We enjoy traveling together, and I enjoy reading, playing volleyball, and volunteering with the Brewers Charity Foundation.
I am so excited to meet all of you and work together to help your child learn, grow, and reach their full potential.
