Chivonne Wilde has been hired as a 6-7-8 teacher at Sierra Foothill Charter School (SFCS). Wilde moved to Mariposa County from Oregon and loves working with middle-school students.
“I believe in keeping learning fun and active while engaging students in intellectual conversations and logical thinking,” said Wilde, who spent three years in the military where she became an accomplished mechanic, has a strong math and science background. She has experience pulling different curricular subjects together to create project-based, hands-on lessons, and in helping her students recognize how what they are learning in school applies to the real world. She said she couldn’t wait to focus lessons on “being responsible and caring for our community.”
Principal Travis Blagg is thrilled with Wilde and three additional new teacher hires, stating the individuals possess the right combination of skills, experience, and enthusiasm necessary for the school to hit the ground running in August 2012. In addition, all three teachers hold California multiple subject teaching credentials.
