Ms. Aly

Hello! My name is Aly Knandel! I am very excited to be your child's teacher this year.

I was born and raised in Minnesota. I attended Tartan Sr. High School, I then continued my education at UW-River Falls, where I earned my Bachelor's Degree. I recently graduated from the University of St. Thomas with my Master's Degree in Special Education. 

I began my career in education as a special education paraprofessional. I was a paraprofessional for three years. I then began my career as a special education teacher in 2022. This will be my second year of teaching.

When I am not teaching, I like to participate in a lot of hobbies. I enjoy taking photography, listening to music, attending concerts, traveling, hiking, and spending time with my family and friends.
