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 sixth year. I've taught 3rd grade, Title I Reading and Math, and 4th grade at Raven Stream.

I married my high school sweetheart in August of 2014 and we now live in our first home in Jordan, MN.  We have a 3 year old son named James, and a 1 year old daughter named, Emmaline. We also have a 6-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, dancing, and going on walks.

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!
