Welcome to First Grade in Room 1302 :)
My Name is Shelia Kanniainen,
I have been a techer at crossroads since it opened in 1999. Wow the time flies
I am part of the 1-2 loop and I am currently teaching first grade.
I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Geography from the University of Minnesota and a Master of Education from the University of Wisconsin, Riverfalls.
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 from here. They just need to follow their dreams and work hard. They will need help but they can succeed.
I have 3 grown children (Kevin, Erik, and Erin) and one grandchild Ezra and another grandson due this December.
We are kind of a running famliy. My son Erik recently completed anultra marathon of 100 miles and I was lucky enogh to be his pacer for the last 7 miles. My greatest distance this year was Grandma's Marathon with my daughter-in law Katie. We weren't fast but we were finishers. My grandson loves to go running in the dirt with grandma. I love to do it so I can be strong enough to do a good job teaching my students,
I live in Hammond Wisconsin. I have a yard full of flowers and vegetables. I need to spend time in nature and I think children do too.
I love to spend time with my family. We enjoy cooking together, hiking, and going to the theater.
I am interested in Sustainability and using our resources wisely.
I want all of our children to have a happy safe childhood and a lfe where they belive their dreams can come true.
