Sharon Groen's Bio

 Email Mrs. Groen

Greetings to all the Children’s Corner parents and families!  My name is Sharon Groen and I will be the teacher in the Tuesday/Thursday class beginning in October.

My husband Brant and I are two old farm kids from southwestern MN.  We have been married for 41 years, parented three now grown children and cared for 2 dogs, 4 cats, 1 rabbit, 2 birds, 1 iguana, 1 hermit crab and 13 aquariums of various fish over the past 24 years!  Our family have been active members of Bethel Lutheran Church since 1981.

Following my high school graduation, I attended Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota, graduating with a BA in elementary education, K-6.  I have taught 3rd grade, ECFE, Learning Readiness, been a Parent Educator as well as most recently teaching at a Christian preschool here in Willmar for 8 years.  Over the years, I have taken additional classes in Early Childhood education.

I look forward to getting to know your children—and you, in the days ahead!  It is a privilege to be a part of helping your child grow, explore and learn more about God’s amazing world and the important part they play in that world.
