Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Craig

I love first grade!  First grade is the ideal year to grow into strong readers.  I have been teaching for many years in Colorado and St. Paul, in the classroom and as a reading specialist.  I began teaching in St. Paul in 1994 as a Reading Recovery teacher, and then moved back into the classroom.  I have been at American Indian Magnet since 2015.

I grew up in New Jersey and went to college at the University of Colorado.  Skiing was a great adventure every weekend!  I have two bachelor degrees: Psychology, Elementary Education. My Masters Degree is in Reading.  

I have a number of hobbies I enjoy: reading, hiking, biking, cross country skiing, sewing and gardening.  In the summer I visit my family and friends on the east and west coast, and go to see beautiful gardens around the country.  I love to visit state and national parks too. I love to camp and hike by Lake Superior.

My son was born in 1991.  He is my miracle child and loves to read too.  My husband and I raised him in Lakeville, MN and then I moved into an apartment in St. Paul after my son went off to college.  St. Paul is a great place to live and work, with many things to do.  It feels like a small town in a big city. 

I am excited each year to work with my first grade students!  Thanks for visiting my website.
