3rd Grade: Mrs. Carver
Welcome to the Third Grade Classroom!
My name is Gail Carver. I graduated from Concordia University, St. Paul with a BS in Elementary Education. I have taught in Faribault for 37 years. I love teaching because I love telling children about God’s love for them, demonstrated through Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. It’s also exciting to see students become more independent and self-reliant. I enjoy that moment when “the light goes on” and students understand a new or difficult concept.
My husband and I live in Faribault. We have two grown sons. Our older son works with us in our Kona Ice trucks. Our younger son will be beginning his first year of teaching at St. Lorenz Lutheran School in Frankenmuth, Michigan. In summer, we can often be found in our shaved ice trucks helping organizations, sports teams, schools raise money through Kona Ice.
One of my favorite Bible verses comes from 1 Peter 3: 15 “But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect.”
