New Faculty: Amy Dornbach, Kindergarten Assistant
We're excited to welcome Amy Dornbach (Kindergarten Assistant) back to Breck. Ms. Dornbach, who taught at Breck several years ago, graduated from The College of St. Benedict with a B.A. in Education.
When asked about what makes her passionate about teaching, she explained, "My passion is fueled by the children and families I have had the privilege of working with and learning from. My teaching experiences in preschool through second grade — both here in Minnesota and in parts of Asia and Europe over the last two decades — have shown me most importantly how to be an 'other' — how to empathize and understand other perspectives and how to connect with and engage a variety of learning styles and needs. I am motivated to give all that I can to my students."
When not at Breck, she loves to walk, travel, camp, explore the backroads, read, draw, paint, bike, puzzles, visit, collect rocks and kayak, to name a few!
Middle School students share ways to celebrate Indigenous Peoples' Day this weekend and on Monday, October 11.
