Trudi Cabrera


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 8th 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!

When I am not in school I spend a lot of time with my husband Steve and our son, Cade. Our family loves to spend time outside! Whether that is fishing, kayaking, riding 4 wheelers, golfing, swimming or spending time with our dog--we just love to be outside!

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.
