Welcome! My name is Gina Paulsen. I am the 3rd grade instructor at Hospers Elementary. I am super excited to take your kids on a learning journey here. Keep clicking on to learn more about me, my interests, and my philosophy!!I love coming to work every day here at MOC-FV. We will have a FROGTASTIC time in 3rd grade! Teaching kids is my passion. Go DUTCH!!

I graduated from Paullina High School in 1989 (yes, that is giving a bit if info on age isn't it) and continued my schooling at Northwestern College in 1993, and completing my masters in Special Education in 2000. I have taught grade levels K-12 now, and have also been a special education consultant for 4 years in between. I am also our 3rd grade team leader for the district and the Language Arts Curriculum Director K-5. I live on a farm west of Paullina with my high school sweetheart. We have 3 wonderful children: Taylor (junior at ISU), Kyle (freshman at DMACC in Ankeny), and Derek (Fourth Grade). Needless to say, it is busy at our household. When I am not teaching or parenting I am serving on the South O'Brien School Board, loading pigs, working cattle, helping in the field, and doing my best at gardening. I love watching my own children grow and flourish which is so very exciting for me as a teacher. I love 3rd Grade!!!
