Thank you for visiting the Third Grade website. Please visit this site often to stay in touch with daily assignments, upcoming events, pictures of the class and so much more. I am so excited to get to know you!
This year I will be starting my 32nd year of teaching in elementary education! Wow, I had to recount to see if that was right! It sure doesn't seem that long. Every year is a new beginning, with a fresh class of smiling faces eager to learn :) I have taught in Breckenridge for 26 of those years. The last few years I have been teaching 3rd & 4th grades. I grew up in the small town of Marietta, Minnesota. I attended college at Southwest State University in Marshall, Minnesota. I received my Master's Degree from St. Mary's University in Minneapolis, Minnesota. My first teaching job was in Farmington, Minnesota. I lived two blocks away from the Minnesota Zoo, which was really exciting when the tiger got loose and nobody could fine him! :(
After getting married in 1992, I moved to Fergus Falls. My husband works for CHS. He is a regional manager of elevators which includes: Fergus Falls, Underwood, Chokio, Morris, and just branched out to the Big Stone Lake area.
We have 3 boys, Derek, Reece, and McClain. Derek just graduated from NDSCS and is working for Douglas Machining out of Alexandria MN, Reece is a senior at Concordia college and plays baseball for the Cobers, our youngest "Mac" is a senior in high school.
Having experienced my own children's schooling, it gives me great compassion and respect for parenting and a good understanding for what takes place before and after "3rd Grade" in a child's development.
Outside of school my interests are family related activities, many hours a week driving to and attending my sons' sporting events, as well as time on our lake, gardening, scrapbooking and until my yard work got the best of me, I used to run.
Again, I will always be ready to hear any concerns that you may have.Sincerely,
Third Grade Teacher Breckenridge Elementary School 810 Beede Ave. Breckenridge, MN 56520
