Who Am I?

myselfHello! My name is Wesley Wingert, I’m from Mukwonago, WI,  and I am currently pursuing a career in education as a high school English teacher. Hopefully in a couple of years I’ll be able to make a blog post informing all of you that I have succeeded!

My Education:

  • Undergraduate: Secondary English, University of Wisconsin – Plattteville

Interests:

  • Literature (Anything)
  • Videogames
  • Teaching (Obviously)
  • Batman. That’s right. Movies, Graphic Novels, the like
  • Movies/TV shows (via Netflix and Amazon Prime)

Goals:

  • Graduate from UW-Platte
  • Become an English teacher
  • Integrate tech in my classroom effectively

Why I Want To Be A Teacher:

I want to inspire whatever youth I can to read and love literature as much as I do. I want them to understand that loving English does not mean you have to love the classics. I’ll let them know that I like a bit of Shakespeare here and there, but I can also go from reading “Macbeth” one hour, and a Batman graphic in another. In general, I want my passion for literature to pass into the lives of my students.
