About Miss Bakkum

    Welcome to Merton Primary School! My name is Lynsey Bakkum and I have been teaching since 2015. I  graduated from Winona State University in 2012 with my Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Elementary Education.  Currently, I am going back to school for Educational Leadership at Cardinal Stritch to pursue my dream of being a principal one day. I have challenged myself throughout my first year at Merton by attending conferences and workshops, such as ICE conference and have become Level 1 Google certified. 

 I enjoy being active and staying healthy. I love running, yoga, and working out with friends. Spending time with family is  very important, we enjoy watching Packer and Badger games, traveling, and having cookouts. 

 I believe in a welcoming, safe, and compassionate environment within my classroom. When students feel respected and  able to take risks, they are able to reach their highest potential, which is the ultimate goal.
