Hi friends, Welcome to second grade :)


My name is Shelia Kanniainen.

I am a teacher in the 1st-2ndgrade loop on the Science side of Crossroads Elementary.  Currently we are in the second grade part of the loop. 


I have been a teacher for 25 years.  I have been at Crossroads since it opened in 1999. 


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 have 3 grown children (Kevin, Erik, and Erin) and one grandchild Ezra .  I live in Hammond Wisconsin. I have a yard full of flowers and vegetables.


I love to spend time with my children.  We enjoy cooking together, hiking, and going to the theater. 

In the last year I have run both a whole and half marathon.


I am interested in Sustainability and using our resources wisely.
