Do you recognize this first grader?





Yes, that is me way back in 1965! I attended first grade at Linden Hills Elementary School in St. Louis Park, Minnesota. I attended junior and senior high school in Watertown, Minnesota. I started my college education (after getting married and having two daughters) at Moorhead State University and then did the majority of my undergrad studies at Mankato State University.

I have been teaching at Kennedy Elementary my entire teaching career.  This will be my 26th year!  I thoroughly enjoy when former students connect and share their memories and their current life stories.  Just a few weeks ago, a former student connected when she was shopping and saw Mr. Sketch markers that I had used in class way back one of my very first years.  She had a flashback to share. Fun!
