Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. LeAnn Konken

I love teaching!  I've taught 5th grade since 2006 and sincerely enjoy being surrounded by students who are still in touch with their fun side, yet are beginning to show who they will become as an adult.  Fifth grade is a busy year.  It is a high-stakes year.  So much is riding on our ability to work hard and learn as much as we can!

I grew up in a very small town in Nebraska and married my high school sweetheart.  John joined the Army and we have lived in Germany, Colorado, Texas, Michigan, Kansas, and Georgia.  He retired in 2009 after serving 21 years and now works for a property management company.  We have 2 daughters, Hillary and Pam.  Hillary is married to Jared Harmon and they are both teachers in Henry County Schools.  They have two little boys, Rory and Weston. Pam joined the Army and is a Lieutenant stationed in Germany.  We miss her so much and can't wait to visit her!  We are very proud of our little family!  We have a dog named Odie and 2 cats named Lilly and Dora.  

I received my bachelor's degree from Kansas State University and my master's degree from Troy University.  I love to read and watch movies and occasionally we drive up to the mountains and take the jeep on some pretty cool adventures!
