Hi there! I hope everyone's official summer is off to a great start, in this crazy season we are in. I wanted to share with everyone that I will be taking a new position next year at Briggs Elementary. It was a heart wrenching decision as Andrew has always been my home and I feel very honored to serve our students here. I'm so proud of all of the amazing things our school has accomplished in the past decade, and I know these amazing things will continue. Thank you everyone for your love, support, and friendships. As Always, I love your face! 🥰

7th grade is applying all of their geometry skills learned to recreate a scaled floor plan of our math classroom! Fun fact: Before deciding he wanted to become a teacher, Mr. Riedesel wanted to be an architect!

4th grade had an awesome time at Cornelius Seed Corn today. We learned about their harvesting process and learned so much about corn. We also toured the one room school house #9. Make sure to ask the students about it when you see them. We were thankful to learn so much today!
