Albert Lea.

If from Albert Lea, which elementary school did you attend?

St. Theodore

Favorite teacher of all time and why?

My favorite teacher of all time is my first grade teacher. Her name was Emily Welhaven. She always made learning so much more fun. I have been blessed with many great teachers.

Favorite book/author:

“Me Too!” by Mercer Mayer, because my sister used to read it to me. I enjoy realistic fiction.

Current/past activities, volunteer work and accomplishments:

Some activities I am involved in are golf, tennis and softball. I really enjoy golfing with my dad and grandpas. Also, I was in the school play, show choir and student council.

What advice would you give to younger students in Albert Lea?

Always try to be positive and helpful.
