Welcome to Multi-age Grade 1/2!
Welcome! My name is Tracy vanNatta and I am one of the multi-age grade 1/2 teachers here at Groveland. I have been teaching at Groveland since 2005 and with St. Paul Schools since 1997. I first began working in Discovery Club and I have taught grades K-2 as well as being a reading specialist. My teaching has brought me to several schools in the SPPS district including Expo Elementary, Randolph Heghts and Nokomis Montessori.
When I am not at school I enjoy spending time with my family, camping, reading and traveling. I also enjoy cheering my children on at their sporting events. My family includes my husband, son, and daughter. We are an active family with school, sports and a dog named Maizy.
My classroom is built around community and respect for one another. I love the energy my students bring to school each and everyday!
