• All about Mrs. Gegen

    This is my second year to teach 3rd grade,4th year as a teacber. I am loving them so much! There is a ton to learn in 3rd grade and I really enjoy teaching them what they have to know. I have said I wanted to be a teacher ever since I was in the 3rd grade myself! I grew up in Cushing and wanted to stay close to home so I went to OSU and decided Sillwater would be my forever home! My favorite colors are pink & teal! I love to eat, pretty much any food but I could eat Mexican food every day and not get sick of it! I love to read and watch movies! I love chocolate and popcorn as my snacks!

    I am married with 2 children, a boy and girl. My daughter is in K this year and my son is just a baby!

    I would love to have open communication with parents so please get with me with any questions or concerns...
