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.
