Meet Mrs. Carlson

 
My mom, sister, me, Jay, my dad, and my nephew on our wedding day!
This is my fifth year at Rosa Parks and my sixth year in the Mankato School District. I LOVE third grade! Each year I am so lucky to have a group of students who are eager to learn new things and build on their previous knowledge. My students mean the world to me and I am so fortunate to be able to spend each day with them throughout the school year.

I graduated in May of 2011 from Minnesota State University, Mankato with a degree in Elementary Education and a specialty in English. My most memorable teaching experience was when I student taught abroad in Guadalajara, Mexico. While there, I completed Spanish classes, taught in a bilingual school, and had the opportunity to participate in many service-learning projects. It was a once in a lifetime experience! I also just recently graduated with my master's degree from MNSU this last spring. I love, love, love learning!

 My husband and I live in New Ulm, where he works as a supervisor for a road construction company. When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my family and curling up with a good book.
