ABOUT MRS. GIRARD:    I grew up in the southern metro suburb of Savage, Mn and attended Prior Lake High School. In high school I participated in band where I played the baritone and was a member of the color guard. I also participated in speech and mock trial but found my passion on the dance team. I danced on the high school team and was the captain my senior year. I also danced at a local studio (Premiere Dance Academy) from the age of 5 and competitively from the age of 12. After high school I attended Minnesota State University, Mankato where I received my B.S. in Elementary Education with a specialty in middle school science. Throughout the summers of my college career I was a counselor and program coordinator for a United Methodist Church camp in Park Rapids, Minnesota; Northern Pines Camp. While there I fell in love with the outdoors and learned many things that I have brought to my teaching today. After my summers as a camp counselor I began teaching at CRSS in the fall of 2010 as a kindergarten teacher. I was married to my husband in 2012 where we met at Northern Pines Camp, and recently had our first child in January 2015!
