Welcome to our Classroom Website

    Hello!  My name is Mrs. Kalsow and I teach 5th Grade Transition Math, Explorations in Social Studies, and Talent Development at Dayton Elementary.   This is my fifth year teaching Transition Math and my third year teaching Talent Development in the Anoka-Hennepin District.  I have a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from Luther College and was a computer programmer for several years.   I also teach Explorations for grade 4 and 5 which is a Social Studies course.   After receiving a teaching license in 2010, I taught middle school mathematic in NE Minneapolis, and have been a substitute teacher before joining the Anoka-Hennepin District

    Outside of my school day, I enjoy gardening, hiking, reading, and spending time with my daughters. 

    I am excited to be teaching and learning with your students,  and am looking forward to watching them learn and grow.
