Ms. Proels: First Grade

Meet the Teacher

Welcome to our Classroom Website! I am overjoyed to be able to spend my first year as a teacher, teaching some amazing students! I can not express how happy I am to be apart of the school, community, and atmosphere of Ashby, MN. I am from Hamel, Minnesota which is located 30 minutes NW of Minneapolis. I grew up on my grandfather's farmland in Hamel and moved to Bemidji, MN where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and an Endorsement in Pre-Primary Education. Prior to accepting my position in Ashby, I was able to student teach in Brooklyn Park in a Pre-Kindergarten classroom and a First-Grade Classroom. Before teaching in Ashby, I was familiar with surrounding towns as my family has property in Rush Lake, and my grandma lived on Dead Lake in Richville, for quite some time. Some of my hobbies include hunting, fishing, and travelling. One of my most recent trips was this summer, I was able to spend some time in Alaska deep sea fishing and fly fishing. Above is a picture from my trip! I am looking forward to a great rest of the year!
