Hello Students and Parents!! My name is Mrs. Kelsey Morken. I am entering my thirteenth year of teaching and my fifth year at Spring Grove Public Schools. I am excited to teach Pre-Algebra for 7th graders, Linear Algebra for 8th graders this year.
I graduated high school from Spring Grove, and I headed to Southwestern Community College in Creston, IA and graduated with my Associate of Arts Degree. I finished my undergrad at Minnesota State University, Mankato with a degree in Elementary Education and a specialty in Middle School Math. In efforts to continue my lifelong learning goals, I completed my Master's of Education in Teaching and Learning from St. Mary's University of Winona in May of 2015. I am currently enrolled in Culturally Relevant Student-Centered Learning Courses through Hamline University.
My husband Tim, son Bernt (9), and daughter Kallyn (7) live on a farm north of Spring Grove. Tim is a busy farmer raising crops, beef cattle and turkeys at Morken Farms, LLC. When I am not in the classroom, I love to spend time working out, running, hanging out with family and friends, going on gator rides, and being in the gym coaching and watching sporting events.
