Area teachers prep classroom for new school year

Area teachers are getting their classroom ready for the first day of school.

Sydney Hulbert is excited to make her debut as a first grade teacher at Spence Elementary in La Crosse.

“I’m really excited,” Hulbert said. “This is where I want to be. This is my ideal grade.”

This week, Hulbert has been putting furniture in place and making sure her students have all of the resources they need for the school year.

“I haven’t done any of my bulletin boards yet—birthday bulletin boards, word wall bulletin boards, calendar bulletin boards…those kinds of things that they’ll use every day.”

Hulbert said she’s excited to get started and get her students back in the school routine. The first day of school for the School District of La Crosse is Tuesday, September 3.
