Underdahl     Hello!  I am Ruth Underdahl, a Kindergarten teacher at Pilot Knob STEM Magnet School. I began teaching in District 197 in 1987 and have taught kindergarten since 1992.  
     I earned my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education at the University of MN, Duluth and my master's degree in Reading Education at the University of MN.
     I stay very busy at kindergarten.  Each year brings new challenges with new students and often changing curriculum.  I am especially interested in learning new technologies and how to integrate these into current curriculum to keep students motivated and challenged to learn at their own specific abilities.
     I have twin daughters that have recently graduated from college.  My hobbies include reading, learning Spanish, exercising and bike riding.
