Hi! My name is Pam Krecek and I am so excited to be a part of the Oak Valley community! I am looking forward to all of the incredible adventures in learning we will experience in third grade! Prior to joining the third grade team, I worked as a Resource Paraprofessional at Harvey Oaks Elementary for six years. It was through my experiences volunteering at my children's school, and working with kids at Harvey Oaks, that I became determined to pursue my dream of teaching children in my own classroom. I believe that all children have the ability to learn and in my classroom I want to empower all my students to be amazed by what they can do when they set their mind towards a goal.
I love spending time with my kids, Jack (16) and Lauren (14) and our two crazy dogs. In my free time, I enjoy making jewelry, gardening, "up cycling" furniture, taking pictures, reading, and watching movies.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN. I earned my Master's degree with an ESL endorsement from College of Saint Mary in Omaha, NE.
