Hello! My name is Annie Strupeck, and I am proud to be a part of the ELL Department at Como Park Senior High School. I am originally from the Chicago area, but have lived in St. Paul for over 25 years. I have been teaching with St. Paul Public Schools for 20 years. I am dual-licensed in English Language Arts (ELA) and English as a Second Language (ESL). This year, I am teaching 2 sections of a double-block class: Level 2 ELL Literacy/ELA 9 and English Language Development.
I graduated from the University of St. Thomas with a B.A. in English and secondary education licensure. After teaching English in Japan for 15 months, I returned to St. Paul and started teaching ESL. I completed my ESL licensure and M.A. ESL at Hamline University. I have taught elementary, middle school, and adult students, but most of my teaching experience has been with high school immigrants and refugees. I love working with our English learners and am honored to be their teacher.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my two young children, traveling, cycling, cooking, and being in nature.
Currently, I keep all of my assignment grades on Schoology.
