Amy Narveson received her B.A. in English from St. Olaf College. She worked in radio advertising for several years before entering graduate school and earning her K-6 teaching license and master’s degree from the University of St. Thomas. Amy began her teaching career in the Edina school district as a kindergarten teacher before taking 10 years off to stay home with her 3 children while they were young. She made her return to education at Prairie Creek in 2012. She worked as a Special Education paraprofessional, school librarian, and as the Title 1/Literacy & Math Intervention teacher before becoming the lead teacher in the Doves K/1 classroom. Outside of teaching, Amy enjoys kayaking, downhill skiing, running, biking, photography, and most of all traveling. Her enthusiasm for traveling and learning has taken her worldwide to study in various countries such as Egypt, Israel, India, Taiwan, Japan, and South Africa. She likes to incorporate her global experiences into her classroom when appropriate. “My goal as a teacher is to instill in my students an excitement for learning, and to help each student grow and learn in meaningful ways.” Amy lives in the country with her husband and 3 growing children.
