Ms. Anna Lund

My name is Anna Lund. The children call me Ms. Lund. I am so excited to be an E2 classroom guide here at Cherokee Heights! Something I love about Cherokee Heights is all of our wonderful students. I love being a part of this small community school and building connections with all of my students and their families.

I have been a classroom teacher for many years in 4 different schools including South Korea, Minneapolis, Bloomington and St. Paul. I am so happy to be in Saint Paul, where I am from and where I live with my husband John.  I enjoy hiking, running, exploring, reading, cooking and growing food!

I graduated from the University of Minnesota-Morris with my BA in Elementary Education in 2012. I completed my MA in Literacy Education in 2019 at Hamline University. I completed my elementary Montessori certification at the Montessori Center of Minnesota in August, 2021. 

As Dr. Montessori observed, children at this age of development are propelled by the capabilities of their reasoning mind and their imagination. Through our work in the classroom this year, my hope is to continue to inspire the children to follow their curiosities and explore their interests while also supporting their individual unique needs.
