Who’s Who?

Hi!  My name is Michelle Klug (Kloog), and my life roles cover include many things  I am a reader, a baker, a gardener, a builder, a do-it-yourself-er, a mother, a wife, and a teacher. I love my family, music, cooking, sunshine, hiking, teaching, and challenges. I get excited when I can share my experiences (successes and failures) with others in order to help them learn and grow while continuing to grow myself at the same time.  We are truly stronger together!

Background Basics

I grew up in Wausau attending Lincoln Elementary, John Muir, and Wausau West. I attended college at  UW-Stevens Point, and after graduation I started my career in the Wausau School District. Over the last 28 years, my teaching experience has included work at the kindergarten, K-1 multi-age, second, third, and fourth, grade levels as well as teaching Reading Recovery at various schools all in the Wausau District.  I earned a Master’s Degree in Education from the University of Stevens Point and I am currently continuing coursework at Viterbo University in the area of Reading Instruction and Diagnostics. Presently, I am a Title 1 Reading teacher at Hawthorn Hills Elementary School working with students in kindergarten through fifth grade.

Contact Options

I can be reached at Hawthorn Hills in person or by phone (715)261-0045 ext. 27102 from 7:45 - 8:30 am or 3:30-4:00 pm. You may also contact me by e-mail at [email protected] at any time.  Life is busy and schedules are full.  Answering your questions or discussing concerns is very important to me! Technology helps make connections more immediate, but my family is also a priority.  Please allow a 24 hour response time for calls or messages sent after school hours.  Thank you!

Not There YET… but getting closer … together!

Being a mother of three (Matt - 27, Megan -25, and Mikahla - 18), I know what it’s like to worry about your children, want to protect your children, and the need to be an advocate for your children. I understand celebrating even small accomplishments that are in reality huge gains for some children, and how words and actions can build up your child or tear them down in a matter of seconds.  I know my job as a parent was to help my children grow, learn, and become independent.  It isn’t much different as a teacher.  I want those same things for your children each day.  Regardless of background, family dynamics, school opportunities, or community setting - EVERY person and EVERY family has challenges and obstacles to overcome. There will always be things that we haven’t experienced or don’t understand very well.  There will continue to be new things to learn as the world around us changes on a daily basis.  While students, teachers, and parents may not always have the answers, we can’t let ourselves get stuck in the “I don’t know’s” and the “I can’t’s”, but instead we need to learn to add the YET.  As I move through the days, months and year with your child, there will be ups and downs, struggles and gains, failures and successes, frustrations and celebrations.  I will continue to remind your child that they may not be where they want to be YET, but we can find strength in working together as we tackle challenges, overcome obstacles, experience new things, and learn more each day!  I hope you join the power of YET…..Youth Education Together… Let’s be strong!
