Ms. Anna Gustafson
My name is Anna Gustafson and I am an E2 teacher at Crossroads Montessori. I have been teaching at Crossroads since 2016.
I am a graduate of Concordia University, St. Paul. In 2011, I recieved my Bachelor's of Arts in Elementary Education. I am licensed in elementary and pre-primary education. In addition, I'm Montessori trained in E1 and E2 through Midwest Montessori Teacher Training Center in Illinois.
Teaching is my passion. I have worked with children in some way beginning in middle school and I haven't stopped. I spent 5 years teaching in an IB (International Baccalaureate) school before falling in love with the Montessori method.
Outside of work I spend my time working on my house, walking and hiking, indoor climbing, kyaking, reading, sewing, gardening and painting. In addition, I love spending quality time with my family and friends at home and up north. I feel most at home out in nature.
Some of My Favorites:
Color-blue and green (I just can't pick one)
Candy-pretty much anything with dark chocolate
Sport-Hockey (Go Wild!)
