"Hello, I am Valerie Fischer and I am the new First Grade Teacher at Luxemburg-Casco Primary School. I am originally from South Milwaukee, WI. I attended South Milwaukee High School and UW-Green Bay.

I have a large extended extended family that is extremely close. I am the oldest daughter of four girls. My dad is a retired police officer and my mom runs an in-home daycare. Many of my family members either are teachers, were teachers, or married a teacher! My family has two dogs, “Bella,” and “Bessie,” as well as a cat named “Mickey.”

In my spare time I like to make crafts using my Cricut machine. I make t-shirts, tumbler cups, mugs, and gifts for family and friends. Along with crafting, I probably spend too much of my spare time reading.

One fun fact about me is my name is Ms. Fischer and I actually like to fish!"

"Hello! I am Jessie Spude and I am the new ID and EBD Teacher at Luxemburg-Casco Primary School. I am originally from Richfield, WI. I attended Hartford Union High School and UW-Oshkosh. I earned my Master’s Degree from Minnesota State University-Moorhead.

I am married to my husband, Nick. We have a daughter, Evelyn, who is a year-and-a-half old! She is so much fun! My family does not live in the area, but all of Nick’s family does and it’s great to be close to them. I love spending time with my family, especially doing anything by the water. Growing up, we had a jet ski and it was my favorite.

One fun fact about me is that I only have one step-brother and no nieces or nephews on my side. However, when I married Nick, I he came with a huge family! Now I have 4 brothers-in-law, 6 sisters-in-law, and 9 nieces and nephews! I absolutely love it! I get to see one of my nieces and one of my nephews everyday here at school and it’s the best!"
