Welcome to Third Grade!
Welcome to third grade! I am excited to have the opportunity to teach third grade again this year. It will be year full of learning, fun and new adventures!
I am thrilled to begin my tenth year of teaching and my ninth year here at Hoover. My teaching career started as a 6th grade teacher in St. Peter. I was there for one year and the remainder of my years have been here at Hoover! I started my time at Hoover as a Kindergarten teacher and moved to third grade after one year. I absolutely love third graders! My true passion is teaching and the daily joys and challenges it presents! I graduated from Winona State University with my Bachelors in Elementary Education. I also have my Master's in Education from Minnesota State University-Mankato.
One of my favorite things to do is travel. My husband and I take every opportunity we can to get out and enjoy as many sights as possible throughout the year! We love visiting National Parks. My favorite vacation so far has been traveling around the State of Colorado and seeing the Rocky Mountains. I also enjoy spending time with my family, especially my Grandmother. My 'Grandma Kitty' means the world to me and I spend as much time with her as I possibly can! I grew up on a farm in Wells, MN and thoroughly enjoyed the small town country living. I have one older brother who lives in Wells and continues to farm with my family.
I am looking forward to a fun and exciting third grade year! If you have any questions at all throughout the school year, please do not hesitate to contact me.
