Welcome to Mrs. Backes's page!


I am currently in my 16th year of teaching here in St. Charles. This year I will be teaching Math to all sixth graders as well as English to half.  I previously taught for five years in Lanesboro. My hometown is Granada, MN. I have graduated with my high school degree from GHEC High School, undergraduate degree from Southwest State University, and Master's degree from St. Mary's University.

In my free time I enjoy camping, boating, playing piano, and spending time with family and friends. I also love anything to do with Disneyworld and traveling to tropical destinations!

My husband, Greg, and I are the proud parents of our tenth-grader, Emma, our seventh-grader, Sara, and our sweet little Hawaiian girl who is now two years old, Anna Leilani!  Anna has quite the birth story.  She was born in Hawaii two years while my family and I were on vacation!

I am looking forward to another great year of teaching 6th graders at St. Charles!

If you'd like to get ahold of me, I can be reached through email or calling 932-4910  ext. 215
