Introducing Mrs. Paula Braun

2016-2017 begins my 29th year of teaching. This is my 28th year at Dover-Eyota Elementary, my first year in 6th grade and the rest in 1st grade and kindergarten. I earned my Bachelor's and Master's Degrees at Winona State University and have continued my education in Early Childhood, Reading/Language Arts and Math and Science.
Mrs. Suzette Rowen and I are team teaching in kindergarten with Mrs. Rowen teaching Reading/Language Arts and Mrs. Braun teaching Math.
I live in St. Charles where I was born and raised, marrying my high school sweetheart. Dover-Eyota was our town's ultimate rival. Now I am an Eagles' fan as much as a Saints' fan, unless one of my 4 boys are participating in a sport against Dover-Eyota; then I revert to a Saints only fan.
I believe in Dover-Eyota Schools and its staff so much that I have open enrolled all 4 of my boys, now ages 17, 23, 28, and 30, to Dover-Eyota Elementary. So I can advocate for education at Dover-Eyota as a teacher but also as a parent.
Dover-Eyota teachers strive to keep updated in all areas of education, including curriculum, brain research and technology. They are also very welcoming to all children and make our school a warm, safe and enjoyable place to grow, live and learn.

I truly enjoy every moment of working with children. I look forward to helping children see the potential within them, and the joy of looking forward to each new day and its new experiences. I work to help children believe in themselves and to show them that they have power in controlling the choices they make to be happy and to learn as much as they choose. I try to make learning easier and more enjoyable for all of them. My goal is that each child goes home each day happy and fulfilled in his or her learning and growth in all areas of learning: academic, social and emotional.
