Welcome to Grade 4!
Mrs. Larsen grew up in Calgary, attending Bishop Carroll High School where she especially enjoyed studying Math and thought about becoming an accountant or a nurse. She truly found her calling at the University of Lethbridge where she obtained her Bachelor of Management, Bachelor of Education, and recently completed her Masters in Education through Gonzaga University.
For the past 9 years, Mrs. Larsen has been teaching students at St. Francis Jr. High and St. Paul Elementary. Her hope for all of her students is that they learn to be independent; that they are happy; and that they serve others. Her students appreciate her positive attitude and the way she makes learning fun. She especially likes teaching Math and Art, but the part of teaching that really makes her smile is when she sees kids excited to learn.
After school, Mrs. Larsen enjoys curling, golfing and hanging out with her son, Owen.
