7/8th Language Arts & Math Teacher
Mrs. Nylund is originally from Owatonna and attended St. Mary’s as a student. She graduated from the University of Minnesota-Duluth with a bachelor of Applied Science. Before she began teaching at St. Mary's in 2006, Mrs. Nylund taught in a multi-age classroom at St. Isidore School in Litomysl. Following that, she worked at Sylvan Learning Center, working primarily with middle school students. Mrs. Nylund received her master’s degree in Education and Leadership through Southwest Minnesota State University in 2010. She is married and has two children, one who attends St. Mary's.
Having attended St. Mary’s school as a child and having started my teaching career in a Catholic school, I knew deep down that the Catholic school setting was where I was really meant to be. My experience at St. Mary’s has confirmed that. I feel like I have become a member of a family and am so proud of what this school has to offer its students academically, spiritually, and socially!
