What inspired you to teach?
I am passionate about expanding access for my kiddos. I also work to bring choice and voice to my students.
Describe a favorite teaching memory
It's the middle of a stressful day. I have been teaching students how to correct spelling mistakes on their own using spell check. After I explain it for what feels like the millionth time, a student puts his hand on my shoulder and says "Mr. Mishleau - calm down. I'm only 7!" It was sage advice.
Something I can’t live without is…..
Diet Coke, technology gizmos and a MakerSpace for my kiddos!
When I'm not teaching I am …...
1. "For or against: wind, tax credit or drilling?" Persuasive writing
2. "Global warming: what is it?" Online scavenger hunt
3. "Our warming planet: a call to action!" Project based learning
