Welcome to 109!

Dear 1st grade students and families, 

Welcome to 1st grade! My name is Lizzy Bouts and I am so excited to begin my fifth year teaching 1st grade at Hiawatha.  This is my seventh year at Hiawatha, as I student taught here in 3rd Grade, and then worked as a Long Term Reserve Teacher and Bilingual Associate Educator.  I have been working towards my Masters Degree through St. Mary's University since last fall, and look forward to graduating in May of 2018!!

My husband, Logan and I live in Rosemount. Together, we enjoy traveling and being outdoors with our two dogs, Harriet & Chelby.  We are big sports fans and enjoy cheering on our Minnesota sports teams! 

To this day, my favorite and most memorable grade was first grade. I still remember the feeling of becoming an independent reader and learner!

I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to teach your child! The best part about first grade is watching the growth and progress in reading and math throughout the year. 

I prefer to stay in touch via email. My email address is: Elizabeth.Bouts@mpls.k12.mn.us.

Thank you!

-Mrs. Bouts
