Welcome to Kindergarten!
Hello, Families! My name is Greta Callahan and I am thrilled to be your child's teacher! It’s going to be a fun year, full of lots of learning and new adventures. I want to know all about your child, but first I’m going to tell you a few things about me.
I was born and raised in Minneapolis, MN and I am the fifth born out of eight children. I am very close to my siblings and parents. I love my job and my family! I live with my adorable son, Morris. Morris is going into fifth grade this year and loves to read and swim. I attended Augsburg College for both my bachelor’s degree and my master’s degree in education. I love teaching kindergarten and am extremely passionate about the education of our children. In my free time I love to cook, go to the park or lakes with Morris, create things for our classroom and I do lots of yoga! Namaste. J I have traveled all over the world, including Australia, New Zealand, Russia, England, France, Jamaica, Mexico, Canada, and the Caribbean Islands. I love to learn about our beautiful planet and meet new people.
A few notes about our classroom:
In addition to having extremely high expectations, I run an exciting reading program throughout the school year that brings in a guest once or twice per week to read to our class. We have hosted two mayors, congressman, state representatives, musicians, poets, artists, sports players, various politicians and many more community leaders. This experience is so special for our class and our visitors; I can't wait to see who comes this year!
I am so excited to be your teacher and for you to be a part of this awesome group of kiddos! We’re going to have a great time learning together!
I have a strong belief that all children can learn. I have high expectations of myself, my students and parents. When we work as a team our children are successful!
