9Tidbits about Mrs. Paulson

I have been fortunate to teach in Verndale for 30 years.  I am a Moorhead State graduate and received my Masters of Education from St. Scholastica. For two years I was the district Literacy Coordinator.  It was a fufilling change, but I've been enjoying the return to the classroom and a new group of Hoppers each fall! 

My husband John and I have been married for 30 years.  I have three children, Morgan (27), Michael (24), and Matthew (21).  I also have two  labs, Sasha and Grizzwald.  On the weekend you can find me reading novels, spending time with friends, and cheering on the VIKINGS!!!
