Mrs. KonecnyHello, and welcome to First Grade! My name is Mrs. Lauren Konecny and I am so excited to be your teacher for the 2022-2023 school year.

This will be my fifth year at Wildwood Elementary School. Previously, I taught kindergarten and second grade in Illinois where I was born and raised. I have a passion for working with K-2 students and love the atmosphere at Wildwood. I graduated from Northern Illinois University with my master’s degree in early childhood education and my bachelor’s in child development.

My husband and I have two kids. Our son, Henrik, will be 3 in September, and our daughter Finley is 1 year old. We love going on bike rides, long walks, visiting Stillwater, and being outside as much as we can. We also love visiting Illinois to spend time with our families.

I am thrilled to be your child’s teacher and watch us all grow and learn together!

Mrs. Konecny

Our School
At Wildwood Elementary School, we honor the whole child and teach future-ready skills of inspiring curiosity, embracing change, and turning ideas into action. Our talented teachers and staff members work with students in small class sizes and nurture a culture of excellence that has become the expectation and norm. Our students learn social-emotional skills alongside academic core areas in order to gain the foundation for academic success. In addition, they have the opportunity to engage in learning with specialists in gym, art, media, music, and STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) classes. Our elementary school is surrounded by green space and our students enjoy recess at our natural playground and attend classes in our outdoor classroom. We have an engaged and supportive parent community who volunteers and supports the school with academic opportunities and tools. Our District is a leader in engineering and science and we value academic areas that will spark curiosity, fuel creativity, and instill a lifelong passion for innovation in our students.
