            Meet Mrs. Smith

I am continuously thankful to have the joyous opportunity to teach kindergarten to the wonderful children in Lester Prairie. The parents, families, and community members are awesome supporters of the school, the children, and the teachers.

* I grew up on a farm near Kandiyohi, Minnesota and went to high school in Willmar.

* I received a Bachelors Degree in elementary education (Grades K-6) from St. Cloud State University and a Master of Arts Degree with a K-12 Reading Licensure from Concordia University.

* My family includes four children, as well as 5 grandchildren ranging in age from 22 to 6 years.

* Special interests include music, the arts, reading, science, nature, and life-long learning.

* Summer Highlights: Being with family, working at Kid's Depot, taking care of flowers on my yard, and enjoying the beauty of nature.

* I am looking forward to meeting new students and new families during the 2020-2021 school year. It is always a joy to learn from them and with them! 

* In addition to a strong language arts program focused on the Treasures
curriculum by Macmillan/McGraw-Hill, and the Math Expressions curriculum by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, the children will have fun learning in a theme-based, child-focused learning environment.
