Welcome to Mrs. Binsfeld's Second Grade Website!
My name is Mrs. Binsfeld and I am excited to be teaching second grade again this year! This will be my 33rd year of teaching and my
fourteenth year teaching second grade. My husband Mark and I live in St. Cloud and I have two adult children. I feel so blessed to be a part of our SKD family and I'm looking forward to a fantastic new school year!
God bless you!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. You can contact me by leaving a voice mail (Ext. 222) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
