Mrs. Bouts - Room 109

Dear 1st grade students and families, 

Welcome to 1st grade!

My name is Lizzy Bouts and I am so excited to begin my sixth year teaching 1st grade at Hiawatha.  This is my seventh year at Hiawatha, as I completed my student teaching in 3rd Grade, and then worked as a Long Term Reserve Teacher and Bilingual Associate Educator. 

I earned my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education with a Spanish Minor from St. Cloud State University, and recently graduated with a Masters Degree in Teaching and Learning from St. Mary's University of MN. I am a lifelong learner and love to share my passion of learning with my students!

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! We also love getting away to our family cabin in Brainerd, MN. 

To this day, my favorite and most memorable grade was first grade. I still remember the feeling of becoming an independent reader and learner! First grade is a very exciting year of growth for your child, and I look forward to celebrating all of your child's successes and challenges along the way! 

I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to teach your child. 

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

Thank you!

-Mrs. Bouts
