3rd Grade Teacher, Trinity Elementary West
I am Joleen Praus and I teach 3rd grade at Trinity Elementary West. From as early as second grade I knew I wanted to be a teacher. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education and a concentration in Kindergarten from Dickinson State University. I was blessed with a teaching job in Dickinson Catholic Schools after graduating in 1988. I taught Kindergarten for 10 years before moving to third grade where I just finished my 28
th year of teaching. My husband, Les and I have two boys: Hunter and Dillion - both graduates of Trinity High School. During my down time I love vacationing with my family, watching TV, and reading. My favorite books are the Harry Potter series and mysteries.
