Welcome to the Ms. VanEssen's Kindergarten Class!

I am excited to start my second year of teaching in kindergarten! Last year I started my teaching career at the third grade level in Adrian. Growing up I had always wanted to become an elementary teacher. I completed my college degree in three, short, years while working as a lead- preschool teacher in my hometown. I moved to Luverne last year after living with my parents on Lake Shetek. In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my friends and family. I like to go on vacations, spend long afternoons on the lake and bake delicious treats.
