About Miss Roland

This is my sixth year at Virgil Grissom Elementary as a fifth grade teacher.  I attended college at Iowa State University and am a huge Cyclone fan!  I know that I may not have that in common with a lot of you :o)  I am currently working on my masters degree in Educational Leadership at Western Illinois University.  I really enjoy applying what I learn in class in our 5th grade classroom.

I have coached volleyball for North Scott in the past, but am taking a break from that to focus my energy on the classroom.  In my spare time I enjoy playing volleyball, running, reading and traveling.  I was very fortunate to live and student teach in Australia for two months.  I often tell stories about my time there and it is great to share those experiences with students.  I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
