2nd Grade: Mrs. Meyer

Welcome to the Second Grade Classroom!

My name is Kellsey Meyer and I have been teaching at F.L.S. for six years. I love teaching primary grades to see the daily wonder in their eyes, especially when learning about our Lord and Savior.  In the classroom I place a high emphasis on the serenity prayer-Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage the change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

I grew up in Faribault and attended Concordia University in St. Paul.  I currently live in Faribault with my husband, a part time Faribault Firefighter and Army National Guard Sergeant. In my spare time you will find me walking our dog, Mowgli, or perusing for my next Pinterest craft project.
