Welcome, to Mr. Rath's third grade page.  I am very excited for my opportunity to teach at Hughes Elementary in Red Lake Falls.  It has been amazing to see the transformation of the school and how much work has been done to make sure the building is ready for school.

I grew up near Strathcona, MN. I went to school in Roseau, where I graduated in 1999.  There I grew a love for hunting and fishing.  I also grew a love for education.  I graduated from NDSU in 2003 and then became the Youth Coordinator in Thief River Falls.  I then went back to school and graduated from Bemidji State in 2011 with a Elementary Education Degree.  I come from Badger where I taught third grade the last two years.  

I look forward to meeting everyone and the opportunity to be at Hughes.
