Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, I am Ms. Kalkbrenner and I teach 6th grade Physical Science and 6th grade Go For It! (kind of like a pre-AVID!). This is my 5th year teaching, all here at Global Arts Plus! I live in Rush City, Minnesota with my boyfriend and his two kids, Izzy (11 years old) and Brady (7 years old). When I'm not teaching, I enjoy reading, adventures, animals, going out to eat, anything technology, and my cat Oscar. I grew up in Rush City, MN. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Biology from University of Minnesota Duluth and a Master's degree in Teaching from Hamline University.
I use schoology as our class website. I keep this up to date with the grades, daily activities, homework assignments. I use remind messages to send out reminders about homework, quizzes, or other school happenings. Please sign up by texting the message @gapsci6 to the phone number 81010
I use donorschoose to raise money for special things to have in our classroom, check out my teacher page here!
Our classroom has a pet corn snake, his name is Nigel! He is 10 years old and super nice. Click here for a picture of him.
