Since the beginning of school, the Energy class at Mosaic has been learning about Energy Transfers and how animals and plants support each other in their natural habitats in Wisconsin.

New Teachers Get Oriented to the Culture of Community and Learning at Étude Thumbnail

For the most part, this year’s new teachers didn’t know a thing about the Étude schools before they applied to work here. They saw a post for a teaching position at ESAA, Mosaic or IDEAS Academy and decided to check out our website to learn more. “It’s a bit of a drive, but I’m applying,” recalls Becky Knight excitedly. “I was immediately grabbed by the whole vision.” Rod Stoehr also saw the posting, went to the website and thought it sounded like a great fit. There was something about Étude’s unique learning philosophy, positive environment and collaborative culture that told each of them they belonged here.

Copy MosaicBlog SGGallery Feeling bored? I mean, board? When you stroll through the halls at IDEAS Academy and The Mosaic School you will see boards and be able to touch them, too. During a March artists collaboration with Sebura and Gartelmann at the JMKAC[/middleschool/mosaic-blog/mosaic-students-to-collaborate-with-john-michael-kohler-arts-center-artists/], Mosaic students learned about visual aspects of original messages and designed their own signs using various sized panels. The signs speak in bold colors about safe, memorable, and peaceful places. Étude Studios Intern Erik Tetschlag has gathered these and fashioned them into wall decor and a sculpture to keep the students’ learning and messages visible to all.
