Hello.  My name is Jill Soltau.  Iam the 5th grade teacher at LeRoy-Ostrander.  This is my 35 year teaching in L-O.  I taught 3rd grade for 25 years before switching over to 5th grade.  I received by undergraduate degree from Winona State University and my masters degree from University of Minnesota.  I have 5 grown children and 7 grandchildren.  My husband, Tom, and I live here in LeRoy.
Fifth grade is a very exciting year.  It is the students last year in the elementary wing of the building.  We start out the year with 2 conservation days.  With this we camp over night at Lake Louise State Park and take part in many learning experiences through out the two days and night.  We also do a science field trip; every other year it is either the MN Science Museum or the National Eagle Center.  This year we will be doing the Science Museum.  We will be going skiing at Welsh Village the first part of March.  I hope your child will enjoy the year as much as I will.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns.  Here is my contact information:  507-324-5741 ext. 2263, email is
