Ms. Kinzer

Hello!  I am in my third year at Highland Park Senior High, but not my first year in the district.  I have been teaching ELL since 2000.  Prior to teaching, I worked in imports for a national retailor.  I earned my Bachelor's of Arts degree and my ELL License at Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota.  I live across the river with my husband and two dogs.  I am lucky to have my son close by at a University in St. Paul.  My duaughter however moved out of state to begin her college journey. I enjoy boating, gardening, cooking, reading and spending time with family and friends.  I think I have the best job in the world.  My students amaze and inspire me each day. I hope to do the same for them.

Period 1: Biology with Ms. Bolopue

Period 2 and 3: US History Survey with Mr. Berndt

Period 4: Prep

Period 5: ELD

Period 6: PLC
