Welcome to First Grade, KoMets!

I am so excited to learn and grow with you this year!A picture of Mrs. Marquardt standing outside, smiling, wearing a red shirt.

My name is Mrs. Marquardt.  This is my 8th year teaching, but my first as a KoMet!  I graduated from University of Northern Iowa with an elementary education degree and later graduated from University of Wisconsin - Stout with a Masters of Science in Education.  I love first grade and encouraging students to find their spark.

I live nearby in Dodge Center with my husband, Tim and 1 year old - Becca.  Tim farms with his family just north of Mantorville and we love spending family time on the farm.
