Hello Students and Parents. I'd like to welcome you to 2nd grade. We have a lot of exciting things planned for this year. I think you will like your classroom and Burnside Elementary! I'd like to tell you a little bit about me, so you "get to know me" better. First of all, if you are having a hard time saying my name, don't worry. Here's a little hint to help you out. If you can say "show" and "bloom", put it together and you can say my name! My husband and I live on a hobby farm in rural Cannon Falls. I have 3 children and 4 grandchildren. Some things I love to do are: camp, fish, garden, bake, sew and do lots of different crafts. On a rainy day or cold wintry day, I love to curl up on the couch with a good book, bake something yummy or watch a good movie. How about you? What do you like to do? Do you have a favorite book? I look forward to a great school year with you! See you soon.
