Brooke McGuire, student at American College of Education

Brooke McGuire

Brooke McGuire is a mother, wife, daughter, sister, teacher, and lifelong learner from Minnesota. She has taught in a variety of settings, working everything from a service-learning summer program geared toward incoming first graders to a high school program for juniors and seniors who struggled with reading.

Currently, Brooke is the Director of Teaching and Learning at her school district. The rest of the time, she’s trying to raise two kids to be happy, healthy, and kind. But, for now, they’re just playing a lot and finding the joy in the "small" things in life. In addition to enjoying every second with her kids, Brooke enjoys spending time with the rest of her family and friends, being outdoors and active, and lying on a beach and reading.
