My name is Gina Wilson. I currently teach Kindergarten at Shields Elementary. I have been teaching for 15 years. My first year I taught 3rd grade in Saginaw Public Schools. Then I started teaching here at Shields Elementary. I taught for 8 years in first grade. So I am very well versed in what your child needs to know for Kindergarten and the skills they need to gain to be successful not only this year, but for their future. I am very blessed to be in such a wonderful and supportive district!
I received my teaching degree from Saginaw Valley State University. I also received my Masters in Teaching Reading from SVSU along with my Reading Specialist endorsement.
My life keeps me on my toes. I have been married for 10 years and I have a 24 year old daughter,a 21 year old son, a 7 year old son, and an 3 month old daughter! I also have a 2 year old granddaughter. (Yes! I am a Grandma!) I am very blessed to have such wonderful family!
My husband and I completely gutted out a 1920’s farm house, which is currently our home. We have worked very hard on this. ( I would never do it again! 🙂 )
I love to play cards, swim in our pool, and go camping and fishing. My time with my family is priceless so I try to fit as much of it in as possible.
I love teaching and I am so glad to be a part of your child’s education. I am looking forward to a rewarding year with your child. I will encourage them to find their strengths and build on them. I truly care and I am very passionate about my work and love my students as if they were my own.
