About Amanda & Kindergarten
I am Mrs. Rohde and I am so excited to be your kindergarten teacher this year! We are going to have tons of fun and learn a lot. My favorite things about kindergarten are reading stations, math games, and art projects. We will read, write, make new friends, and go on field trips. Kindergarten will be fun, but it will also be hard work. Are you ready for a great year?
This will be my fifth year teaching and my second year teaching at Nasha Shkola. I have previously taught second grade and 5/6 grade math. I live in Mound and love spending lots of time on Lake Minnetonka waterskiing, paddle boarding, and fishing. This summer I got married! I have a boxer puppy named Bailey who I love taking on walks and playing with on the lake.
What I love about Nasha…
I love Nasha Shkola because it is a small school which has developed a strong community. I love that the small school and class sizes allow me to get to know students throughout the school, not only in my grade. I also think it is a huge advantage that students attending Nasha Shkola will learn both English and Russian.
