Ms. Aeschlimann - Social Studies



Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Aeschlimann

I was born and raised in Switzerland. I grew up multilingual and was fortunate to go on adventures in other countries early on. I moved to the United States in 2003 as a junior in high school. At that time, English was my 5th language and I was an English Language Learner. My childhood experiences instilled a deep passion for traveling and languages. I love learning about other cultures and the history of the world, which makes teaching you about ancient civilizations an absolute dream. 

Some things about me:

I graduated from the University of Reno, NV with a Bachelor of Science in Integrated Elementary Education with a specialization in English as a Second Language and this is my 4th year teaching. I have been at Mendive MS since I started teaching and I absolutely love it here. I currently live in Verdi with my 11 year-old-son (Everett) and my 18-year-old dog (Nikita) and my 8-year-old cat (Neva). I love living out there because everything I enjoy doing is in my backyard.

When I am not teaching, I am also a student at UNR. I am currently working towards my M.Ed in Reading Curriculum and Instruction with a reading specialist endorsement. As you can tell, I love learning and reading. Some of my other hobbies include doing anything active outdoors with the ones I love. Some of my favorite activities inlude snowboarding, mountain biking, hiking, camping and simply enjoying adventures in nature. 

I am so excited to be your 6th grade social studies teacher this year and can't wait to make this the BEST year!
