My name is Andrea Steimle and I am a 1st grade teacher at Bridge Point Elementary. I am about to embark on my 12th year teaching in an elementary school setting, having taught in West Palm Beach, Florida and Green Bay, Wisconsin. I completed my undergraduate degree at St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin in 3 years majoring in Elementary Education and Spanish. Shortly after I became certified in Bilingual, ESL, and Reading Recovery. In 2009 I received a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction, and Reading. Teaching has always been my passion, and I am thrilled once again to begin another school year!
My husband Jake and I relocated to Austin from Wisconsin 6 summers ago when he accepted a Geologist position with an exploration company. We don't miss the cold and have enjoyed every second here since our move. Jake & I are proud parents of an almost 4 year old, Everett. Our family also includes a Samoyed dog named Aspen who loves to go on walks and snuggle on the couch. I like to occupy my free time spending time with my family, exercising, and exploring Austin!
I am looking forward to a wonderful year full of learning & growing! If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate in contacting me through email at firstname.lastname@example.org. or calling me at school at (512) 732-9200. Thank you!
