My name is Leah Blonigen, and I teach fifth grade! I received a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from St. Cloud State University before teaching first grade for two years here at CSE. This past May, I received my Master's degree from Southwest Minnesota State University! This is my sixth year at CSE, and I'm excited to continue my journey in 5th grade. I love working at a wonderful school with great students, parents, and staff!
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family. My husband Luke and I have been married for 4 years and have two boys, Owen (2.5 years old) and Milo (born this past April). We spend most of our time running after them, but we also love to go camping, fishing, watch movies about trucks or dinosaurs, go to the library and hang out with family and friends. Some of my hobbies include: cooking, reading, listening to podcasts, yoga, and going on walks with my boys.
