Indiana teacher encourages other women in welding

Andrew M. Santos

How do teachers captivate their students? Here, in a feature we call How I Teach, we ask great educators how they approach their jobs.

One of Kim Rosenbaum’s former welding students called, asking to speak to her class. He was a pipefitter now, and he wanted to report back that everything she had taught him about what it was like to work a job had been spot on. 

Rosenbaum, an award-winning teacher at Twin Lakes High School in Monticello, Indiana, had started her career in welding as a single parent who needed to support her family. Before becoming a teacher, she worked for 14 years in machine shops — experiences that she thinks make her a better teacher.

“I could bring that to the weld shop here and express to them what the real world is like,” she said.

Rosenbaum recently spoke to Chalkbeat about how she prepares her students

On the red carpet, celebrities like Jennifer Connelly, Viola Davis, and Eva Longoria all made stylish cameos—but it was supermodel Adriana Lima who truly shut it down. Attending with her boyfriend Andre Lemmers, Lima delivered a glamorous maternity moment that was all about accentuating her growing baby bump. (This will be Lima’s third child, and her first with Lemmers.)

Lima wore a black gown designed by Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing for the occasion. The floor-length silhouette’s main feature was a cutout at the stomach, drawing the eye to Lima’s baby bump.
