Hello and welcome to Ms. Angela Koch’s (pronounced ‘cook’) K/1 classroom! I look forward to my first year at Natural Science Academy. Many people and events have influenced me and led me to the field of education. I have always enjoyed being in the company of kids, watching them learn and grow academically and individually. I also have a passion for exploring the outdoors, which I hope to instill into the students as well.
I was raised in Coon Rapids, MN alongside four brothers and a wooded area across the street. I currently live in the Lowertown area of Saint Paul with Sebastian, my guinea pig. I am a nature, chocolate, and Nancy Drew enthusiast.
I received a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of St. Thomas in Elementary Education with a double major in STEM and a specialty in Physics. My plan is to teach these students how amazing science and its presence in our world can be!
