Welcome to 4th grade!

Mrs. Groen

My name is Mrs. Groen, and I have been teaching at Central Lyon since 2008. I initially taught TK for three years, and have since taught 4th grade. Prior to teaching at Central Lyon, I taught TK and TAG for three years in a neighboring district.  I graduated from Northwestern College, in Orange City, with a degree in Elementary Education and endorsements in Early Childhood, Reading and Coaching. 

My husband, Justin, and our sons, Leo and Eli, and I live in Rock Rapids, and love the community. It is a great place to live and raise a family.
