Fireside Chat with Angie Oberg

Truly Fostering Students' Authentic Love of Learning and Reading

Angie Oberg, an educator from Minden, Nebraska, is a traveler, concert-goer, reader, thinker, and educator with over 30 years of experience. Her teaching journey evolved from traditional lectures to fostering critical thinking. She emphasizes process over results, encouraging students to ask questions and engage in group discussions. Angie's Back Shelf Library initiative boosted student engagement in reading, allowing them to choose from a diverse collection of young adult novels. Her classroom promotes student agency, growth, and a love for learning, emphasizing curiosity and exploration over data-driven metrics. As she nears retirement, Angie hopes more educators can provide students with personalized, nurturing learning experiences that inspire curiosity and self-discovery.
