Thank you for visiting our school website.
My name is Carrie Lowe and I'm the 2nd grade teacher. I graduated from Northwestern College - Orange City, IA in 2002 with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education. I met my husband, Dan, while working at KAAL-TV, and in 2004 we both moved to Fayetteville, NC. I taught 2nd & 4th grade at a country school, and 4th grade at an inner city school. I learned a lot about myself as a teacher and developed a deeper understanding of cultural differences. I enjoyed my time at both schools and would do it all over again if given the chance. In 2008, our family grew to 3 with the birth of our daughter Mia. In 2010, we decided to move back to Minnesota to be closer to family. I substituted at 6 different schools our first two years back. In 2012, I was offered a part-time job at LeRoy-Ostrander Schools teaching K-2 students. The following year I was given a full-time position co-teaching 2nd grade. I have continued to move up and down grades with different groups of students. In 2013, our family grew again with the birth of our second daughter Maizy. I enjoy living and working in a small community. When I'm not at work I enjoy taking my two dogs (Mulligan & Joey) for a walk, spending time doing activities outside with my family, and reading a good book.
