    My Family  


                 Welcome to Mrs. Kangasniemi's Third Grade Classroom! 

         I am so excited to be teaching 3rd grade this year at ASE!  This will be my 17th year in education!  I taught 5th Grade in Plano, TX for eight years and 4th and 5th grade in Frisco, Texas for five years before we moved to Atascocita.  I received my teaching certification from Michigan State UniversityGo Spartans!  I have been working with children since I was eleven years old when I landed my first babysitting job back in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  My love for children only grew from there. My goals for this year are to learn, play, have fun, challenge and guide my students to be the best they can be!   In my class, students will not only respect differences, but they will embrace them! 
     
          My last name is always a great conversation piece!  Feel free to call me Mrs. K!  My last name is Finnish since my husband is from Finland. Believe it or not, my maiden name was Smith!  My family and I moved to Atascocita about three years ago for my husband's job.  This will be my 4th year teaching 3rd grade at ASE.   I am so lucky to have found such a wonderful place to work!  I have three fantastic children named Mika, Aili and Andre, aged 18, 15, and 12.  My oldest will be a sophomore at Texas Tech this fall.  He just changed his major from computer science to chemical engineering.  Go Red Raiders! I also have a beloved black shephard mix named Shadow. .  I love traveling, spending time with my family, watching my youngest play soccer, watching my daughter ride horses as well as listening to her play the cello.  In fact, my daughter is on the Humble ISD homepage this month for her musical accomplishments!
