Welcome to First Grade!
Hi everyone! My name is Kaymee Butler and I am so excited to be your first grade teacher! This is my fifth year teaching at Lonsdale Elementary School and my seventh year teaching overall. I attended St. Cloud State University where I received my bachelors degree in Elementary Education as well as a minor in Special Education. I also have a masters degree from Concordia University in Differentiated Instruction. I grew up in Mounds View, Minnesota but have lived with my husband in Carver, Minnesota for the past five years.
My passion for teaching and learning began in my first and second grade multiage class where I had two wonderful teachers who truly impacted my life. I found out then that learning can be fun and exciting and learning turned into something I looked forward to everyday. Since then, I have kept that passion alive and am so excited to share it with you and your children this year.
I truly believe that learning is a team effort which includes the students, the teacher, and families. Because of that, I strive to create positive relationships with all families that include open communication and various volunteer opportunities. Please feel free to contact me at anytime with questions or concerns. You can reach me by email, , or by phone, (507)364-3034. Email is the best way to reach me as I am able to check my email periodically throughout the day and will try to respond as quick as I can. If I cannot respond during the day, I will get back to you no later than that day after school between 3:50-4:30.
