Rene Chin

I am pleased to be teaching first grade here at Ryerson Elementary! After serving the children of Madison as a classroom paraprofessional nine years ago, I realized I needed to follow the call to be a certified teacher. I attended University of New Haven and graduated with my Masters of Education in 2010. Filling in-district long term substitute positions actually become a gift in disguise during the years that I was seeking full time employment. I was able to not only get to know the wonderful children of our district, but I embraced further learning from those teachers who became my future peers - the strong and creative Madison teachers.It is a privilege to spend my days with your first graders as we learn more than reading, writing and arithmetic. We learn to advocate for ourselves, to have our classmates "backs", and to engage in deep discussion where we defend our views. To joyous days!
