We are excited to announce that Mrs. Ann Halvorson will be our second grade teacher starting in the fall of 2017.  Below is some bio info on Mrs. Halvorson:

After earning a degree in Dietetics from California State University, Chico and while 

raising five children, (four daughters and one son) Ann went back to college at the University of Minnesota to work on her Masters of Elementary Education. She obtained her K-6 Elementary License and 5-8 Science License and taught first grade two years and fourth grade one year at Lincoln Elementary school in Elk River, MN. Since relocating to Cedar Rapids with her husband and best friend, Rev. Mark Halvorson, Ann has substitute taught in the Cedar Rapids and Linn Mar school districts. She is thrilled to be in a Christian classroom full time. She is passionate about nurturing students’ growth and faith in Christ and helping them reach their full potential. Outside of the classroom she and Mark enjoy reading, exploring the US and spending all the time they can with their now grown children and six grandchildren. They also enjoy gardening and last year Ann fulfilled a long time goal of becoming a Master Gardener through ISU extension.

Mr. Mueller shared his thoughts on hiring Mrs. Halvorson: 

           "Ann brings not only teaching experience--that she gained in a variety of academic settings--but also deep life experience to our school and the second grade classroom.  More than that, Ann is passionate in her desire to help her students grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ.”
