Ms. Colleen Hussa
Hi! My name is Colleen Hussa. I am a 3rd-grade teacher at Elms Elementary School. I have been honored to be part of the Jackson School District for 11 years. This is my 12th year teaching. I have taught in the classroom, as a basic skills teacher, and an Advanced Math teacher. I enjoy working with all grade levels. I love to integrate technology into my teaching. I am also a Certified Google Educator.
As an educator, my teaching philosophy has always been that learning starts with the learner. I am constantly challenging my students not just academically but with real-life skills that prepare them for the complex world. My current classroom is designed as a Flip Classroom allowing students to take ownership of their own learning. I encourage students to be creators, designers, problem solvers. I love to challenge my students and think outside of the box and outside of their comfort zone. Students should have hands-on learning on a daily basis. I want students to break the mold, be flexible. Our society is constantly evolving, I want my students to have the skills to evolve with this complex and competitive world.
