Ann Dettmann

Welcome to BOLD Elementary!

Hello, and a warm welcome to you! Let me introduce myself. My name is Ann Dettmann, and I have been the principal of BOLD Elementary since July of 2016. I am very excited to be here!

I have been in education for over 25 years. I taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades and loved them all. I was a literacy coordinator, and then an instructional coach, and then a dean of students before coming here. Most of that was in Shakopee, with a brief stop in St. Francis.

My husband Dave and I have three children and live in Norwood Young America. Erich and Karl are in college. Erich is studying music at UW River Falls. Karl is learning about political science at Hamline. Our daughter Emma is a senior at Central High School. We also take care of Erich’s cat, Trouble, since he can’t have him at college. Trouble is a Maine Coon with long, orange fur.

I love listening to lots of different music! Haydn is my favorite composer. If I want some rock music I would probably pick Journey, the Eagles, or Metallica. Sometimes I want something mellow like The Carpenters or Casting Crowns. Some days, I need the energy of the Rat Pack or the big band sound of Glenn Miller. I play the saxophone; I have since fifth grade. So, some days jazz music is calling for me!

I also love to read — and love to listen to books on CD during my commute. I enjoy growing pretty flowers. I love to visit with my huge family, most of whom live within an hour’s drive from my house. I like to watch quirky comedy shows and laugh, and I love to chat with all the students and staff at our great school!

I have often heard that the staff of BOLD Elementary is terrific! I can attest that it is true! They are kind and are always willing to lend a helping hand. Every person works hard to make our school the best it can be. I am glad to partner with this great team!

I look forward to getting to know all of the people that call BOLD home! If there is something I can help with, please let me know. I am here to help! Take care!
