I was actually born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. If there are ever questions in a quiz or contest, I will definitely add extra credit for correct Canada answers! I do have dual citizenship, so I can vote in two countries.
I have been married for 19 years to Greg, who is a firefighter here in Rochester at Station 5. Before he was a firefighter, he was a police officer here in Rochester. His next job will be either a cowboy or an astronaut. That way he can have every job that little boys dream about.
We are the parents to 4 great kids. Devon is a freshman at Mankato State University, Joe is a junior and Ethan is a freshman in high school. Sydney is in eighth grade. We are so proud of all our kids who work hard in school and more importantly are kind to others.
We also have one dog and two cats. We live in Rochester on a small acreage. We all ride dirt bikes, snowboard, cross country ski and rollerblade. We are an active family and have a lot of fun together.
I have been a kindergarten, first and second grade teacher. The adventure of being a Media Specialist has been so wonderful. I love working with kids and books, so I really feel like I have one of the greatest jobs ever!
Let me know if you have any questions or anything I can help you with. I am here to support all lifelong learners.
Mrs. Van Moer
