Title I

Mrs. Grubb

Hello and welcome to my website! My name is Crystal Grubb. I am a Title I Reading teacher at Parshall Elementary School.

I grew up in a small town in southeastern Minnesota. I attended Hayfield Public Schools from K-12. Here, my teachers instilled in me a great love of learning.

When I was young, I always knew I wanted to work with children. I knew that teaching would be the profession that would give me the opportunity to make the biggest impact on the lives of children. I attended St. Cloud State University and received my Elementary Education degree with a Middle School Science specialty area.

After graduating in 2007, I was offered a teaching position with New Town Public School District. In New Town, I taught first, third and fifth grade during the five years I was employed by the district. In 2012, a friend of mine was teaching in Parshall and informed me that they had a fourth grade teaching position open and strongly encouraged me to apply. I was chosen for the position and taught fourth grade for one year in Parshall before moving to my current position as Title I Reading teacher. I have both my Reading and Math Title I credentials but I mainly focus my time on helping my students become better readers and enjoy it thoroughly.

I’m looking forward to a great school year!

Mrs. Odermann

Hi. My name is Leslie Odermann, and I teach Title I at Parshall Elementary School. I graduated from Dickinson State University in 1989 with a Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education and a minor in mathematics. I taught middle school math in New Town for 17 years before coming to teach in Parshall seven years ago.

In the Title I classroom, I use several types of manipulatives to help teach conceptual understanding of mathematics to my students. After using manipulatives, I move my students to the pictorial, and then the abstract level. I also like to use songs and movement to teaching skip counting and other various concepts in math and reading.

I am married and have four children and one grandchild. Three of my children have graduated from Parshall High School and the youngest is in the 6th grade. I enjoy reading, baking, walking, watching movies, and spending time with my family.


Mr. Albertson

I was born and raised in a small town in ND. I enjoyed playing football and basketball in high school and also took part in band and choir. My first teaching job was at Ojibwa Indian School in Belcourt where I taught for 3 years. I moved to Parshall in 2003 and started teaching 6th grade. I’m now the Phy Ed/Title 1 Math teacher. I coached football, basketball, and track for many years and have now traded in my whistle for bus keys.

Julie and I have been married for 11 years, I have an 18 year old daughter, two stepchildren, and two young granddaughters.

My hobbies include hunting and fishing, skiing and hiking, and most other outdoor activities. I love cooking and singing, and hanging out with my dog Digger. I have always been a huge 49er fan, and have traveled to watch them twice in my life. Both were losses:(

I love fried chicken,pizza,Tex Mex, and Chinese food. Snickers and Coke Cola are my favorite junk food. Classic rock is my favorite music.
