Hello Parents and Families,
 
My name is Rebecca Antil and I am a third grade teacher here at Kaleidoscope Elementary School along with Mrs. DesRoches and Mrs. Kahl.  This is my sixth year teaching at Kaleidoscope, and my fifth year teaching third grade.  
 
I live in St. Michael with my two sons, our boxer, and our newly rescued boston terrier.  I enjoy many outdoor activities and spend much of my free time with my sons traveling to BMX races, college events, or visiting family.  I am currently spending many weeknights and weekends at Hamline University where I am finishing my Master of Arts in Teaching degree this year.  When I am not busy with work, school, or family activities, I enjoy walking my dog or reading with a good cup of coffee.
 
I believe that this school year will be our best yet!  Please subscribe to and/or follow our third grade web pages, or follow our classroom Seesaw app to keep updated on what's happening at school in the third grade.

Welcome Families, 

I'm excited to be teaching for my 6th year in the 3rd grade at Kaleidoscope Elementary School.  We have an amazing year planned and I can't wait to get started!

I'm lucky to be teaching in the community I call home.  I have a second Grader and Preschooler that keep me on my toes.  In my free time I like to be with my family playing outside, going for walks, gardening, cooking, visiting new places, and just spending time together.  I love teaching and I enjoy keeping up with the latest strategies to keep kids loving learning.  I can't wait to teach your children, this will the best year yet! 

Sincerley, 

Mrs. DesRoches
