Arleen Marie Schilling, Teacher at Mountain View High School in the Thompson School District, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of education.
With nearly 25 years of professional experience in her field, Ms. Schilling has always held a love for helping people, particularly children. Upon realizing she wanted to become an educator, she pursued a formal education, earning an Associate of Arts at Aims Community College in 1990, a Bachelor of Science in history and social studies at the University of Northern Colorado in 1992, and a Master of Arts in technology curriculum and instruction design at Grand Canyon University in 2010. She is a certified teacher in the state of Colorado.
Commencing her career while pursuing her degrees, Ms. Schilling first served as a social studies teacher at Mountain View High School in 1994. She subsequently transferred positions, obtaining the role of language arts teacher at Conrad Middle School in 1996. Returning to Mountain View High School in 1999, Ms. Schilling has been a social studies teacher since that time and excelling in her field.
Owing her success to her numerous mentors throughout her career, Ms. Schilling learned how to make learning fun while still holding her students to high expectations. In particular, she credits Ron Linville, an educator who taught her how to remain true to herself, stand up for her convictions and beliefs, and know her boundaries. Since delving into the field of education, she has never allowed anyone to gain an upper hand when it comes to her education modalities.
A leading voice in her areas of interest, Ms. Schilling maintains affiliation with several industry-related organizations, including the Teachers’ Education Association. She is also a former member of the Colorado Geographic Alliance and the Golden Key International Honor Society. A grantee of Project TEACH from 2003 to 2005, she looks back fondly on her memories, highlighting that one of the most poignant moments of her career was when she brought her students to an airport that housed vintage World War II airplanes. The students were able to watch a short film made with local re-enactors, tour a mock encampment to show what life was like during World War II, and speak with World War II and Korean War veterans regarding their experiences.
In her spare time, Ms. Schilling enjoys landscaping, fashion design, hiking, woodworking, scrapbooking, making cards, and interacting with her family. Looking toward the future, she aspires to continue molding the young minds of the future.
