Stensvad’s ready for 40th first day

Roxanne Stensvad knows the anticipation of the first day of a new school year. She's had plenty of practice managing the anticipation preceding the arrival of students for another school year.
Stensvad will welcome the opening of her 40th school year Tuesday, Sept. 4, when a new batch of students in her biology, human anatomy and college biology classes arrive in her classroom at Glencoe-Silver Lake High School Sept. 4. She is the senior most member of the GSL School District's licensed teaching staff. Chemistry teacher and next-door neighbor, Emily Koehler, wasn't yet born when Stensvad taught her first students in Glencoe.
After two generations behind a desk, Stensvad still enjoys learning. She spent a portion of her summer in the classroom learning about teaching a college in the schools (CIS) class. She enjoys conversing with former students and receiving via email the lessons they are learning in college.
