Hello!  My name is Mrs. Hemmelgarn.  
          It is my pleasure to provide your child with the best transition to Kindergarten possible.  It is my goal to make this year both a positive and exciting time for your child.  I want to take the time to give you a bit of information about myself, as I will have the privilege of spending a great deal of time with your child over the next year.
          I have been teaching in Anoka-Hennepin district for seven years.  It is hard to believe, but this will be my eleventh-year teaching.  I am passionate about working with children.  I believe that we are all lifelong learners, and I enjoy keeping up on the most up to date practices in teaching.  I am proud to be a McKinley bulldog!    
          In my free time, I enjoy cooking, baking, traveling, new adventures, and spending time with family and friends.  I reside in East Bethel with my husband, Scott and our three children (Zach -17, Brad -15 and Kaylee -15).  I enjoy life to the fullest and I believe you will find our classroom to be filled with energy and excitement about learning.
    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!
