     Welcome to First Grade and a wonderful year!
    Let me tell you a bit about myself. I have taught at Eagle Point for fifteen years in a variety of grades - Kindergarten, second grade, fifth grade and first grade.  I also taught Kindergarten and early childhood special education at Beaver Lake Elementary prior to coming to Eagle Point. I truly enjoy teaching all grades but first grade has a special place in my heart.  It is amazing to see the growth the children make and their love for learning.  It is wonderful to watch them learn how to read!
    The photo above shows my family.  My husband David and I have three wonderful children.  Matthew is our son married to Jamie.  They recently moved to New York City.  Laura teaches 10th grade World History in Owatonna.  Peter is attending Dakota County Technical College working on becoming a heavy construction mechanic.  Peter's girlfriend Lizzie is pictured and is a fun part of the family as well. We have a miniature poodle named Lucy who loves to be a part of everything!  I enjoy painting, playing the piano and guitar as well as reading in my free time.  We also enjoy many family gatherings as my parents and two sisters live in the same Oakdale neighborhood.  We often go to our cabin/farmhouse in northern Minnesota.

    I believe that communication between parents and teachers is a key to good education. Please feel free to call (651-702-8366) or e-mail cepland@isd622.org with any questions or concerns at anytime. I believe we are partners in your child's education. We can continue to work together to make your child's first grade year the best ever!
