Hello! My name is Stefanie Topinka and I teach 3rd grade! I grew up in NE Iowa and graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a degree in Elementary Education and Literacy. I moved to SW Minnesota where I taught Kindergarten and 1st grade at Russell-Tyler-Ruthton Elementary. I have a master’s degree in Literacy Education from Hamline University St. Paul. My husband and I live in Fairmont and enjoy traveling, cooking, and lake life. I am excited to be a part of the GHEC community, go Jaguars!
