Dear First Grade Families, 

My name is Lizzy Bouts and I am very excited to begin my seventh year teaching First Grade at Hiawatha. I feel so fortunate to be a part of our wonderful Hiawatha Community School! 

I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with a Spanish Minor from St. Cloud State University, and graduated with my Master’s 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 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 spending time up north at our family cabin in Brainerd. 

To this day, my favorite and most memorable school year 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. My preferred method of communication is email. Please contact me if you have any questions:

Looking forward to a fun year in First Grade!

-Mrs. Bouts
