Mrs. Tiffany VandeZande
Welcome to Pewaukee Lake Elementary and the fun filled year of 4K! My name is Tiffany VandeZande, and I have been teaching 4K for 8 years here at Pewaukee Lake Elementary. I truly enjoy teaching this young age and hold myself accountable to make our classroom an environment where children can explore, learn, express themselves and have fun! I feel it is so important to give each child a positive, strong start to their school career to foster a life long love of learning.
When you walk in our classroom, you will find that the children will be engaged in a great deal of exploration in playful activities. We have a mix of structured and “free-choice” opportunities in both large and small groups. While this is a strong academic program, I equally believe in the importance to help the students improve their social and emotional skills. When the children learn the skills to calm themselves down, use language to express their feelings, and treat others with kindness, this lays the foundation for future social and academic success.
When I am not teaching, you will find me enjoying time with my own family. My husband and I have two daughters that are 17 and 14, who have attended this school district since Kindergarten. I love living in Pewaukee, and I just couldn’t be more proud to be a Pewaukee School District parent and educator!
