Welcome to Alma Area School First Grade! My name is Mrs. Kandi Steinke. In our district there is only one first grade classroom. I have a lot of experience in First Grade as I have been teaching for 35 years and most of my years were in a first grade classroom. I graduated from Alma Area School in 1978 and attended Winona State University for my undergraduate with a major in Elementary Education and a minor in Special Education. I taught in the neighboring school district of Gilmanton for 20 years and have been in the Alma District for 15 years. Since coming into the Alma District I went back for my masters program at Viterbo University in Reading. I also furthered my education by completing my degree as a reading specialist. I love first grade students and their honesty and energy! My first goal for my students is to develop a love of school. A child that loves school will love learning!
I grew up in Alma and so did my parents. I am married to my husband, Alan, who also attended school in Alma. We raised our daughters in Alma and they both graduated from this school. I am very invested in the community and all of us received a good, well rounded education here. The Alma area is a beautiful, peaceful place to raise a family and be involved in the community and school.
