All About Mrs. Larson


Welcome to Second Grade! I am so excited to be your teacher this year. We are going to have a great year and learn a lot! We will show lots of zest for learning and use our good friend grit to help us work hard.


About Me

My name is Kaitlyn Larson, and this is my first year at Jordan Elementary School. Last year I taught as a long-term substitute in 4th Grade and 2nd Grade in Waconia. One of my favorite activities is reading. When I find a book that I really like, I can’t stop reading! Does that happen to you? Sometimes I even stay up late at night reading because I just can’t put the book down. I also enjoy spending time outdoors.This summer my husband Brent and I went camping, which is a favorite activity of mine. It was so much fun roasting marshmallows by the bonfire and sleeping in our tent.


Where I Went to School

I grew up in Chanhassen, MN and went to Bluff Creek Elementary School. After that, I went to Chaska Middle School West for a year and a half. Then, my family and I moved to Shanghai, China (for 3.5 years) and I attended Concordia International School Shanghai. After graduating high school from Chanhassen High School, I went to college. I graduated college from Minnesota State University, Mankato with my bachelors degree in Elementary Education.
