Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Bobbi Jo Rademacher
Hello! My name is Ms. Bobbi Jo Rademacher. I have been a teacher for 23 years and an immersion teacher for many of those years! I taught in Spanish at Adams Spanish Immersion and Wellstone Elementary in Saint Paul, as well as Lakes International Language Academy (LILA) in Forest Lake. I taught English at Yinghua Academy for two years and worked as a district coach for new teachers, working closely with several JieMing teachers, as well as Spanish and French teachers across many Saint Paul schools. Last year, I taught fourth grade in Hangzhou, China at Wahaha International School. It was an amazing experience!
I have a Master’s degree in “Gifted Education & Talent Development”, and have taught as a classroom teacher, but also as a program coordinator of Gifted Programming at Adams, LILA and Randolph Heights.
I have two children, Emily and Eli, ages 14 and 12, who are Chinese immersion students and I was so proud of their amazing language skills! I live in St Paul with my children, my husband Tom and our dog, Rocky.
I’m so excited to join the JieMing team this year!
