Mrs. DeMaster's Blog

I am so excited to be teaching at All Saints this year.  I received my education degree from the University of Minnesota in Duluth.  I taught fulltime for eight years in- 6 years in first grade and 2 years on kindergarten- before getting married and starting a family.  My husband, Ben, and I live in Lakeville with our two boys, who attend All Saints.  When I have a little down time, I enjoy reading, running, watching movies, and spending time with my family.
I will be posting class updates each day on my page.  See the lower right corner for the current date; click on it to see what we are up to in third grade.
