Welcome--updated 9/6/17
Hi! My name is Deanna Capelle and I've been teaching for 30+ years, all here in this district. I have taught grades 2-5 and am really enjoying 3rd grade currently.

I earned both my bachelor's degree and my master's degree in Elementary Education from Winona State University. I enjoyed Winona but am happy I ended up in Spring Valley.

I have two daughters, both working as nurses, the older one (Kelsey) in Wyoming, Minnesota and the younger one (Brittney) in Rochester.  I keep busy with walking, spending time with my daughters and friends when time allows, and trying to keep up with all the new things that come along each day in education. I may not always be on top of everything but will always continue to give my students my best.

Please check your child's planner daily to check on homework assignments and upcoming tests.  Also please remember to initial it that you have looked at it.  Thanks.

You can reach me at the elementary school by calling 346-7276 (extension 1113).
The best times to call are 7:35-8:00, and 3:20-4:00 (quite often I am here much later) or you can email me anytime at capelle.deanna@kingsland2137.org.  Either way of communication is fine with me.  I will do my best to help you with questions and concerns.
