About Me...

       My name is Daria (pronounced like "I dare ya") Dalager and this is my fifth year of teaching at Wabasha-Kellogg. I am truly enjoying my work as a 3rd-grade teacher and look forward to getting to know and mentor each and every one of my students, as well as partner with you to provide your child with a successful and memorable 3rd-grade experience.  I have an open-door policy and welcome conversations not only about your child, but about my own performance as well.
       About me... I have a BA in journalism from Winona State University, and I earned my Elementary Teaching Certification and Master's in Teaching, Learning, and Curriculum from Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA. I spent my first 15 years after college in the businesses of newspaper writing, graphic design and marketing; I was then a substitute teacher for three years in Wabasha, Lake City, and Red Wing, before spending five months as a kindergarten teacher at Bluff View Elementary in Lake City. 
       My family has lived in Lake City for the past 25 years.  My husband, Todd, and I have a 14-year-old daughter, Elyse, who is an 9th-grader at Lincoln High School. We also have a puppy named, Arnold. I love to garden, play volleyball and softball, take walks, ride on my husband's Harley, and spend a lot of time with my family and friends.
