Welcome! I am so excited to be your child's Talent Development
Teacher this year. Please don't hesitate to email me with any questions
you may have.
About Mrs. G. --the TD teacher.....
I attended and graduated from Minnesota State University, Mankato in
March of 1992 and received my Master's Degree from St. Mary's University
My career started as an Independent
Learning Development Aide in the Bloomington, MN public schools. I
moved to Joplin, Missouri in the summer of 1994 and accepted a fourth
grade teaching position.
After three years in
Joplin, I moved back to Minnesota to be closer to family. I was lucky
to land another fourth grade position--this time at Franklin
Elementary in Anoka. I worked there for three years.
Rum River Elementary School opened in 2001, I was offered a fourth grade
position. It was so exciting to be able to open a building for the
first time ever! I worked at Rum River for two years. In the fall of
2003, I came across the opportunity to work solely with talented
students. I helped start up the Anoka Hennepin School District's Talent
Development program and have worked as a Talent Development teacher ever
since then. I have taught in 14 of the elementary schools in the
Anoka-Hennepin School District, but am presently happy traveling between
just three of them--Jefferson, Johnsville, and Morris Bye.
