Laurel Forshée - First Grade Teacher

     I have had the wonderful opportunity to be an elementary teacher for many years.  I taught Second, Third, Fourth Grades and Title I in Greater Northern Minnesota in Frazee, Perham, and Dent.  I moved to Minneapolis where I taught in private schools in Minnetonka and Maple Plain.  I have been in the Minneapolis District  since the 1993 - 1994 school year, where I taught Kindergarten at Willard Math Science and Technology Magnet.  Since then, I have taught Kindergarten or First grade at Putnam, Howe, and now at Dowling Urban Environmental School. I have enjoyed being at Dowling! The families and staff here are awesome! 

     I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota.  My Masters degree in Reading, is from Saint Mary's University. I have taken many other classes ranging from Science, Geography, Mathematics, Reading, Brain Research, and Writing from other universities. As you can tell I have a wide variety of interests and continue being a life-long learner, which is what I want to instill in students. 

     Most of my career teaching First graders and really enjoy being with them everyday!
