Hello 4th Grade Families!

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.  In January 2016 I graduated with my Masters in Educational Leadership through St. Mary's University of Minnesota. I have had experience teaching elementary ESL (4 years) and 3rd grade (3 years) in Albert Lea, MN, Northfield, MN, and New Prague. I am here for my fourth year.  My first two years I taught 3rd grade at Raven Stream and then I switched to Title I at Falcon Ridge and Raven Stream for one year.  I am excited to be back in the classroom this year! 

I married my high school sweetheart in August of 2014 and we now live in our first home in Jordan, MN.  In May of 2018, we had our first child, James. We also have a 4-year-old chocolate labradoodle named Finn.  When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with family and my dog, working out, reading, cooking, 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!
