Coming from the small town of Juneau, Wisconsin, Ms. Saugstad was thrilled to have a job opportunity in Appleton. A city with stop and go lights and a school that incorporated technology with fine arts was not something she had grown up with.

She graduated from the University of Wisconsin Whitewater with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education and a minor in English. Since the fall of 2012 she has had the challenge and pleasure of teaching U.S. History and English/Language Arts to talented and spontaneous 8th graders.

Prior to Kaleidoscope, she spent her first year of teaching at Roosevelt Middle School. Ms. Saugstad feels fortunate to have some very compassionate and dedicated co-workers who challenge her to change my thinking and do her best in the classroom every day.

Outside of the classroom, Ms. Saugstad likes to visit family and attend concerts with her younger brother. She comes from a family of teachers, including her father, grandfather, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. They joke that teaching must be “in the blood.”

Aside from family time, she loves to teach herself new quilting techniques on her brand new sewing machine. New quilts show up in her classroom every now and then. Sewing, gardening, cooking, and baking are additional hobbies that keep Ms. Saugstad on her toes.
