Hi, my name is Vanessa Renz, and I am a 6th grade teacher. This is my 2nd year in Aurora Public Schools. Before coming to Edna and John W. Mosley P-8, I received my B.A from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Go Badgers! In my free time, I enjoy new adventures including traveling to new places, meeting new people, or simply finding a new restaurant to eat at (I also really enjoy food!). The thing I am most excited about for the 2016-17 school year is to continue building relationships with staff and students as well as providing a positive, uplifting attitude to every situation! My job is to accelerate learning for every APS student, every day. I do my job by holding high expectations for each and every student as well as creating an engaging environment where student voices are heard, valued, and at the center of my teaching. My community needs me to do my job.
