Mr. Andrew Sielaff

Welcome to my classroom.  I will be your Math and Science teacher for the coming year.  Although this is my third year teaching at Mirage,  I have taught upper elementary or middle school since 1993 as well as have been a Principal for elementary/ middle schools from 1993-2016.  For most of that time I taught all subjects.  I earned my education degree from Martin Luther College in 1993.  I received my Masters in Teaching from Marygrove College in 2002.  I am currently married, have four wonderful children (2 boys and 2 girls).  I enjoy eating at restaurants and running the calories off.  I also enjoy watching sports and movies.
I believe that all children are gifts; that all children are important; that all children can learn; that parents are partners; that teachers make a difference; that a safe environment is essential; and together we can do almost anything.  I believe that children learn best when education is put into real life scenarios and students own their education.  I believe that children can learn to make good responsible choices and need to be held accountable for the choices they make.
I hope you are ready and excited to begin another year of learning.  I look forward to seeing you and partnering with you.
