Ms. Carissa Tetzlaff

My name is Carissa Tetzlaff.  I have been working at Bruce Vento since 2018.  I grew up in Minnesota, as well as attended the University of Minnesota.  In my free time I enjoy traveling, being outside and being with friends and family.  I love teaching the early grades as there is so much learning that happens in one year.  I believe all students can build a solid foundation of skills in first grade in order to be successful in the upcoming elementary grades! As we are starting distance learning, I know there are a lot of questions around technology. We will be primarily using the platform Seesaw, and I am happy to help at any time with distance learning concerns. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year, and am excited to meet the new first grade class!
