Meet Mrs. Tye!


Hello! My name is Karissa Tye and I am blessed to be a 1st Grade teacher at Chatfield Elementary. I grew up in Sleepy Eye, MN, and I graduated in 2011 from MNSU-Mankato with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. In 2014, I received my Master's Degree in Elementary Education and Reading. This will be my sixth year of teaching and my third year teaching 1st Grade here at Chatfield. 

When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Marc, and our 5-month-old son, Benson. You can also find me enjoying the outdoors, reading, and spending time up north at the cabin. I also love traveling, sports, and cheering for the Minnesota Twins!

Working with young children has always been my passion, so being able to spend my time with amazing kids each day makes my job the best ever! This year I look forward to helping my students grow academically, socially, and emotionally. In our classroom, we work together as a team and have lots of fun too. Please contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns that come up throughout this school year. I look forward to a great year, and I thank you for allowing me to be a part of your precious child's education.
