Mrs. Larson's Class
About Mrs. Larson
Welcome to my website! I'm so excited for the new school year! Parents, I can't wait to partner with you in your child's learning. My hope and dream are that your child will enjoy coming to school, be excited to learn and feel safe in our classroom.
My name is Ariana Larson. This year will be my 10th year teaching but my 13th year in education. I’ve taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade. I’ve also taught as a Target Services Teacher for several after-school programs. In addition, I’ve taught as a school-age care teacher for k-5 students. I’ve loved each part of my journey, and am excited to begin my 8th year at Cannon Falls Elementary.
I got married on September 2nd, 2017, to my husband Jordan Larson. We live in Elko New Market with our two children and our two cats, Survivor and Ollie. Survivor is a rescue cat and pretty chill. Ollie... Well... He is quite the troublemaker. A true "Garfield."
We have 2 children, Andrew & Luke. Andrew will turn 2 on September 15th. In May, we welcomed our son, Luke, to our family. He will just be turning 3 months. We had a very rocky road with our new addition. Luke was taken on a chopper to Children's in Mpls, where he spent 19 days in the NICU and was diagnosed with HIE. We take each day one day at a time, and celebrate each victory.
This summer, we have spent a lot of time snuggling with Luke and bringing him to various doctor appointments, along with physical and occupational therapy. Andrew has enjoyed being a new big brother. His vocabulary is expanding each and every day.
I graduated from Bemidji State University in 2009 with my degree in education. Last year, I graduated with my Masters in Teaching and Learning through St. Mary's University. The best thing about teaching is that I get to put a smile on students’ faces and make a difference in their daily lives.
I spend my spare time with my family, spending time outside, traveling and exploring new places, and cooking. I love creating new dishes. I've been told many times that I've missed my calling but that's ok because the kids are worth it! :) If I’m not creating new dishes at home, I love to try new restaurants. My favorite cuisine is Thai.
