Welcome to K/ 1 in Virtual Learning
My Name is Shelia Kanniainen,
Our virtual classroom will be a K/1 split. Each day students will have a combination of synchronous meetings and individual independent lessons on Seesaw. The best way for you to ask a questuion or send me information is though the parent message on Seesaw. If you prefer you may email me. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Geography from the University of Minnesota and a Master of Education degree from the University of Wisconsin. I have taught grades1,2,4,and K-6 Science .I especially love learning from my students and helping them to learn. I Like to find out where students are in their learning adventure and help them learn more each day.
I went to St. Paul Public Schools and I know your child can go anywhere they want to from here. Students need to follow their dreams and work hard. They will need our help and they will succeed. I know these are times like no other and we can learn and grow in new ways.
I like to learn something every day and be active, outside if possible. Not a year for races but i did complete 2 virtual races last fall. I was swimming 3 times a week until the pool was closed. Now I mainly take laong walks.
I have 3 grown children plus 2 spouses (Kevin, Erik,+ Katie, and Erin+ Joel) and two grandsons Ezra and Finn. I love to spend time with my family. We enjoy cooking together, hiking, and lately spending time apart. I am interested in Sustainability and using our resources wisely. I want all of our children to have a happy safe childhood and a life where they believe their dreams can come true and they work until they do
I look forward to learning with your children the rest of this year.
