Hi! Welcome to my page. My name is Ms. McCann and I am so excited to join the second grade team here at Lake Harriet!  I am going into my 5th year of teaching! I taught first and second grade for the past four years and just moved to Lake Harriet Community school this year. I am very excited to be back where I did my student teaching! I student taught five years ago with Ms. Perez in first grade and LOVED my experience here. I’ve known I've wanted to be a teacher since I was in first grade! I just love helping students learn, understand the importance of what they learn and helping them gain confidence. 

I grew up in Plymouth and now live in Corcoran, which is 30 minutes northwest of Lake Harriet. My parents are just moved back from St. Louis Missouri, where they lived for the past 10 years. I am happy to have my parents closer to me now :) But sadly, my younger sister is staying in Missouri where she is a NICU nurse, so my parents and I will probably be planning many visits to see her there

I went to St. Kate’s to get my B.S. in Elementary Education and a STEM certificate. Then, I just recently graduated from St. Mary’s with my Master’s in Education in Teaching and Learning in May.  I did a big research project on how to help my students become better writers. I loved being in school again to learn new ideas to bring back into the classroom. I am always looking for new, fun ideas to try in the classroom! I am very passionate about teaching and love advocating for my students. 

My favorite part about teaching is getting to know my students during morning meeting and watching their confidence grow throughout the school year. I love helping them find their interests and watching them get excited about learning. I am very excited for this opportunity to teach second grade at Lake Harriet Community school. I look forward to getting to know you and your child throughout this school year!
