Meet Hannah Boger - LP's New 3rd Grade Teacher

Hannah lives in Cokato, MN with her husband Steve and dogs Beckett and Zuri. The family is expecting a baby girl in December! Hannah graduated from the University of Northwestern in St. Paul with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and an emphasis in math and science.

One of Hannah's favorite things to do is hike and camp in Northern Minnesota. She also loves cooking, baking, attending live music and sporting events, traveling, and spending quality time with family and friends.

Hannah's favorite movie is Peanut Butter Falcon because it does a good job of demonstrating what it means to care for people with special needs and the joy people can bring into our lives. Her favorite book is You are Special by Max Lucado because the story encourages readers to shift their focus from what others think and say to finding the true value in ourselves.

Meet Angelica Biondo - LP's new Art Teacher

Angelica was born in Rockford, Illinois and moved to La Crosse, Wisconsin in 3rd grade. She attended St. Cloud State University for her degree in Visual Arts Education, subbed in St. Paul for a year, taught 2 years in Alaska, and 1 year in Hutchinson. This past summer, Angelica married her best friend and colleague (he is also an art teacher) and bought a house in Silver Lake.

One of Angelica's favorite things to do is to discover and hike new trails. She also loves to bike, fish, weave, draw, organize messes, cook, and play video games. Her favorite book is The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy because it's a witty look into the meaning of life, adventure, changing relationships, and friendship.

If Angelica could meet any historical person, it would be Theodore Roosevelt, Jr. because as the youngest president elected to office - and a lifelong believer in conserving and protecting our natural resources - he prioritized conservation and established the national parks system, forests, and monuments intended to preserve the nation's natural resources and beauty.

Elementary students talk about their favorite things in our new commons area:

  • "The new bathrooms because they are so big and wide and so easy to get to from the gym."
  • "The TVs because then we know what's for lunch and what's going on and stuff."
  • "The booths because they're awesome."
  • "The Wordle thing-y because it's pretty cool."
  • "It's really big and bright in here."
  • "Well, everything. It's just really nice."
