My name is Ms. Sokoloski and I am looking forward to teaching 1st grade this school year! It is going to be a great year full of lots of learning and fun! 

I was raised in Orr, MN, and graduated high school from North Woods Secondary (I am very excited to be a Grizzly again). From there on I attended St Cloud State University where I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education (Birth-3rd Grade) with a minor in Psychology.


In my free time I enjoy hunting, fishing, and just simply spending time with my family and friends. I love being on the lake, year-round, no matter what activity I find myself doing. My fiancé and I will be getting married next September and hope to start a family some day after that!

My philosophy as teacher includes teaching to the whole child, which aims to ensure that my students are safe, healthy, engaged, supported, and challenged in my classroom. Additionally, I promote and encourage self-reflection, accountability, responsibility, and clear communication to support crucial life skills at this young age.

I look forward to partnering with parents and guardians to help their child succeed in their education and school experience!
