• Welcome to 5N!

    Welcome to 5N. My name is Kathy Neitzke (night-ski), and I am a certified teacher with a BS in Elementary Education, which I received from St. Cloud State University. Also, I have earned a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis on brain visualization. I have had experience in  the Anoka-Hennepin District in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and mostly 5th grade.   Before coming to Monroe, I had taught at Morris Bye Elementary for many years.
    Originally a native of Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, I moved to the Twin Cities after college.  I grew up on a turkey and grain farm.  All of my life, I have enjoyed the world of learning.
     In my free time, I enjoy biking, being outside working in vegetable and flower gardens, reading, traveling, and spending time with friends and family. 
    My philosophy as a teacher is that all students can experience success. I am happy and privileged to be a part of the Monroe staff. Thank you for supporting your student's education. I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
