Hello, My name is Trudi Cabrera! I am SO excited to be starting another year at MNW Elementary! I am looking forward to a year full of lots of learning, new adventures, and fun!
This is my 5th year teaching. I taught Kindergarten my first year and have been teaching 1st grade ever since. Ever since I was little I've always known that I've wanted to be a teacher. I used to love to play “school” at my parents' house with my brother and sisters. I absolutely love being a teacher!
In my free time you will find me doing something "outdoorsy" with my husband, whether that is fishing, kayaking, riding 4 wheelers, golfing or spending time with our dog.
I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Buena Vista University in Storm Lake. While at BVU I also took courses to earn both my Special Education & Reading endorsements. I even got to spend some time playing on the BVU Women's golf team for a couple years! After my first year of teaching I decided I wanted to go back to school for my Master's Degree. I received my Master's Degree in Educational Technology from Dakota State University in August 2015.
