Hello friends, I am so excited to meet you and start our adventure together in First Grade. This year brings on lots of new independence, responsibility, and learning, but also lots of fun too. We are going to have a great year together.
I can't believe it, but this will mark my 21st year at Central Cass Elementary. I started my journey here as a Para Professional in the Title I room and since have taught 3rd grade, 4th grade, kindergarten and I am currently starting my 9th year teaching First Grade. I love being a teacher and making relationships with each of my students. It is so rewarding watching them grow and mature into confident learners over our year together.
Before teaching, I attended the University of Mary and Valley City State, majoring in Elementary Education, with minors in Early Childhood Development and Reading. I have also taken graduate classes to get my Masters degree through Minot State University.
When I am not teaching, you can find me loving time on our farm and the outdoors. The summer brings lots of mowing, flowers, softball, baseball, and campfires. I am married to my husband Joel and together we have four children; John, Jerrin, Gracie (a junior), and Jaylen (a 7th grader).
You can reach me at Erin.Baumgarten@k12.nd.us or through the school at 701-347-5353.
