Welcome to Mrs. Traetow's Classroom Website!

My name is Michelle Traetow and I teach first and second grades at Fairmont Elementary School. I joined the staff in the fall of 2003 and have loved it ever since! I am originally from Hastings, Minnesota. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree from Gustavus Adolphus College and my Master of Arts in Education degree from Saint Mary's University. My husband, Andy Traetow, is the Principal for grades 7-8 & vocational programs at Fairmont Jr/Sr High School. We enjoy living here in Fairmont with our four children and our dog, Blitz. My interests include: traveling, technology, photography, sports, and spending time with family and friends.
