Hello! My name is Michelle Madsen and I am a 2002 graduate of Redwood Valley! I received my undergraduate degree in education from Augustana College in Sioux Falls, SD. I also earned my Masters of Education in Differentiated Instruction from Concordia University in St. Paul. This will be my 11th year teaching. I previously spent 8 years teaching 8th grade math and math intervention in the Wayzata district. I also spent two years teaching math and social studies at GFW middle school.
My husband, Tony (also a Redwood Valley graduate), and I live in Redwood Falls and have a 3-year-old son named Carsten. In my free time (which is quite limited with a 3-year-old), I enjoy reading, baking, outdoor activities, and watching sports. I am very excited to be back in Redwood Falls and having the opportunity to teach math in the middle school!
