• Welcome to my website! I am so excited to start the 2018-2019 school year! This will be my third year teaching second grade. Before that I taught first grade for five years, third grade for 18 years and sixth grade for one year.  I truly enjoy teaching children of all ages, but I am especially excited to ignite the imaginations of second graders.  I graduated from the College of St. Benedict in 1990, and I earned my Masters in Educational Leadership from Bethel College.  I really enjoy taking classes throughout the year to enhance my knowledge.
    I am married to Kevin Gross, and we have two adult children, Josh and Jordan. and a loveable golden retriever named Crosby. I love the outdoors.  Some of my favorite activities include: walking, running, biking, swimming, and cheering on any athletic game around, especially hockey.  I also really enjoy reading in my spare time.
    We are going to have a great year of learning in 2G!
