Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! My name is Jane Blumer. I've taught at Capitol Hill since the program began in 1985. My undergraduate degree is from the University of St. Catherine in Elementary Education and I have Masters degree in reading from St. Thomas University. I also participated in the Gifted and Talented Certification program at the University of St. Thomas.
I hve taught at the University of Minnesota in the Summer Catalyst program for teachers at the University of Minnesota teaching classroom teachers "Insect Ecology and More".
My oldest son is a former graduate of Capitol Hill class of 1993, Capitol Hill's first 8th grade graduating class, so I'm familiar with our school's whole program.
If you have questions, concerns, or messages, the best way to contact me is by email or by voice mail. I check my e-mail and voice mail after school and will get back to you as soon as possible. During the school day, if you need to reach me for an emergency or time sensitive message please contact the Capitol Hill offfice requesting a message be sent to me or to be connected directly to my room.
When you call during the school day you will be immediately directed to my voice mail, where you may leave me a voice message.
