Hello and welcome to 3rd grade! 

My name is Dana Gearing.  I graduated from Luther College in 2011 with a degree and licensure in K-6 Elementary Education and English as a second language (ESL) K-12.  I have had experience teaching elementary ESL (4 years) and 3rd grade (2 years) in Albert Lea, MN, Northfield, MN, and now New Prague. For the 16-17 school year I moved to New Prague Area Schools and I am excited to continue here for my second year!  In January 2016 I graduated with my Masters in Educational Leadership through St. Mary's University of Minnesota.

I married my high school sweetheart in August of 2014 and we now live in our first home in Jordan, MN.  We have an almost - 2-year-old chocolate labradoodle named Finn.  He is our baby that keeps us on our toes!  When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with family and my dog, working out, reading, crafting, travelling, and working on projects around our home.

I am excited to learn more about you and your families!  Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or updates as often as needed!  Let's make this year a good one!
