Welcome to our Classroom Website!
         Hello,  my name is Mrs. Geiselhart and I am a 3rd grade teacher at McKinley Elementary in Ham Lake, MN.  I teach ELA on a dyad team.  I have a BA in Elementary Education and Early Childhood from Concordia University, St. Paul, MN and a MA in Curriculum and Instruction with a Literacy Emphasis, also from Concordia University. Previously, I spent 8 years as a Reading Recovery teacher and Reading Specialist in the Anoka Hennepin School District and am excited to be using my literacy experience in third grade again this year.  
         I am married and have three sons; Jacob - 25, Benjamin - 22, and Daniel - 20.  I enjoy spending time with my family exploring Minnesota parks and recreation activities.  In my spare time, I love to read and take long bike excursions.   I'm a HUGE Disney fan and enjoy seeing Broadway musicals when I get the chance.
