Hello! My name is Mrs. Polzine-Campbell.

I am again teaching fourth grade at Bear Cave Intermediate for the 2017-2018 school year. In the past I have taught third, fourth, and fifth grades, along with some substitute teaching.

I grew up in the little town of Henning, MN. From there I went to Bemidji State University, Bemidji, MN. I also ran Varsity Track and Varsity Cross Country while in college. Bemidji State is part of the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC). GO BEMIDJI BEAVERS! Additionally, I have a Masters in Education from Winona State University--which is a NSIC rival of BSU! My loyalty is still to Bemidji though... I bleed Beaver green, not Warrior purple!

My husband and I live here in Stewartville with our three beautiful daughters. We seem to be busy all the time, and I am really enjoying watching my children grow up. It is going too fast! If only there was a way to stop them from growing up so quickly.

Some of my hobbies are running, watching and playing athletics, reading, spending time with friends and family, music, theater, photography, and traveling.


Welcome to my website!

I will try to put important information on frequently. The weekly parent letter I will try to change every Monday, put new spelling words on every Friday, and the daily assignments will be changed daily.

My Philosophy of Education

My philosophy of education is that every child can learn. Students learn in different ways, and it an effort of cooperation between the school, home, and the community to find the best way for a child to learn.

I believe that:
Learning should take place with the interests and abilities of the students in mind.
Learning should be valid to the child.
Learning should incorporate real-life experiences.
Learning should be ongoing and flexible.
Learning should be student centered.
Learning takes a lifetime.
