Ms. Caroline LaBate

Welcome to Second Grade!

My name is Caroline LaBate (Future Mrs. Hanson!). I’m so excited to a part of the Capitol Hill Community! This is my 7th year teaching and second grade is my absolute favorite! In my free time, I love to travel and explore, stay active by working out and running, go hiking with my fiance, our two dogs and spend time at our family cabin up north!

I attended the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities and graduated in 2011 with my Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies. I then followed my dream to teach English abroad in the public schools of Gwangju, South Korea from 2015-2017.  After returning to Minnesota, I graduated in May 2019 with my Master of Arts in Teaching from Hamline University. I love teaching and learning and cannot wait to help support our learners to grow!
