Ms. Grothem

Hi there! My name is Ellyn Grothem and I am the Early Childhood Special Education Teacher at Crossroads Elementary. I have a Master's degree in Special Education from Minnesota State University-Mankato, and love spending my days helping pre-k students grow and learn. I have a special interest in music, art, and social sciences. I have experience teaching literacy, reading comprehension, and math skills. My favorite thing to do in the classroom is listen to the children share their stories and accomplishments.


Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking with my fiancee, and fixing up my big, old house.
