My name is Laurie Gillen and I started teaching at Northview over 30 years ago. I have a Masters degree in curriculum and instruction. I love to read, play golf, ski, and travel with my family. Our family lives in Lakeville. We have two daughters. Greta is 22 years old and just graduated from Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. She is currently working as a Graphic Designer at Evereve in Edina. Geena is 18 and started her freshman year of college at the University of Wisconsin Madison. My husband Bob owns and works at the Chianti Grill, Porterhouse, and Stout's Pub restaurants. Our dog Rowdi is 13 years old!
