Teacher Spotlight - Mrs. Rawski
By: Corey Ostensen
Throughout your time at Wheaton North, it is likely that you may have had Mrs. Rawski as a teacher for U.S. History or her personal favorite, AP Human Geography. She says, “I have always loved U.S. History. However, APHG has quickly become my favorite. It is interesting and encourages students and myself to learn about the issues facing the world today.” Mrs. Rawski also used to teach World Civilization and has worked at Wheaton North for 27 years. Later this year, Mrs. Rawski is set to retire.
In reflection of her time at Wheaton North, Mrs. Rawski said, “I have truly enjoyed my high school experience here at Wheaton North. I've worked with some exceptional colleagues, taught some amazing students, and I consider myself fortunate to have been able to spend 27 years in such a wonderful and caring environment.”
In retirement, she plans to practice her Spanish, spend more time with her four grandchildren, travel, and eventually move to Tennessee to be with her daughter & son-in-law, along with their two children. She is most looking forward to “not getting up at 5:15 am!”
In regards to leaving Wheaton North, Mrs. Rawski says, “I will miss the people (teachers and students), the excitement of beginning a new school year with the Friday drumline and fall sports. I will also miss graduation at the end of the year. I love being able to see the students who I taught as freshmen and sophomores successfully completing their high school career and venturing out into their next chapter.”
Mrs. Rawski, on behalf of the Falcon Flyer and everyone else here at Wheaton North, I wish you good luck with retirement!
