Global Studies is the exploration of our world today. Part of that is understanding the events and beliefs that brought us here. History must be confronted with honesty despite discomfort. Through listening to voices different than our own, sharing perspectives and choosing to grow; our actions can create change in our world.

My name is Jennifer Letellier and I am one of the social studies teachers here at Capitol Hill. I teach 8th Grade World Geography.
I live in South Saint Paul with my son Julian. Our family includes our dogs Pathos and Journey. Julian plays baseball and therefore I spend much of my summer watching Julian play. One of my passions is geocaching. I love hunting for treasures and exploring new areas or discovering something new close to home. Julian and I trade off cooking, he has flare for anything noodle based and I like veggies in everything.
Another passion of mine is learning. I continue my work towards my doctorate, studying at Concordia University St. Paul. My learning led me work in gifted and talented education. Sadly, I have found that it is the goal of many classrooms to have the students understand a standard, rather than grow. I want my students to be curious and independent thinkers. My classroom goal is for all to grow!
