Mrs. vanNatta

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!
