Dear Families,


    Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Andover Elementary!  My name is Miss Koski, and I will be your child’s first grade teacher.  I am THRILLED to be working with your child!  Our “rockstars” will be busy going on many learning adventures this year. 


    I am so excited to begin my eighth year teaching with first graders.  I have been an Inquiry Specialist, first grade teacher, and fourth grade teacher.  First grade is ABSOLUTELY where my heart lies! 


    I graduated from Winona State University in 2011 with my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with Emphasis in Early Childhood.  I received my Master’s Degree in Education and Educational Technology Certificate from the College of Saint Scholastica in 2016.  Currently, I am finishing up post-graduate classes through Colorado State University-Pueblo. 


    I attended kindergarten through twelfth grade in Anoka-Hennepin schools, and I am so happy to be working in the district that gave me the desire to teach.  I hope I can have an affect on your child as my teachers had on me. 


    In my spare time I enjoy working on projects around my house and playing with my dog, Gerald.  I have three nieces that I absolutely love to be with: Madison (17 years old), Grace (7 years old) and Stella (4 years old).  My relaxation spot is at my parents’ cabin in northern Minnesota where I can cruise on the pontoon and dominate at yard games. 


    Welcome to 1AK!  Let’s have a fabulous school year!
