The 2017-2018 academic year is my fifth year at Highland Park Senior High School and I am thrilled to be back!  Students in both my 9th and 11th grade sections will study a variety of classic and modern literature and they will learn how to better express themselves through creative and analytical writing projects. 

More than anything, what I hope to accomplish this year is for students to find their own voices, to form and defend their own opinions on complex topics, and to learn to love literature.

I was born and raised in Minneapolis (go Twins!), received my B.A. from the University of Minnesota, and will be earning my Master's at St. Catherine University in May.




Mondays and Wednesdays from 2:15 to 4:00 (later, if needed)
Some Thursdays and Fridays (please check to confirm my availability before showing up)



Please contact me via email if you have any questions or concerns:

I also have a Twitter account dedicated to school. Follow me for homework reminders, interesting articles (some directly related to our current units, some not), and a quick way to contact me outside of class @Ms_Becker_SPPS

I have a classroom phone (651-744-4467), but I don't answer during class and often do not check messages until very late in the day, so email is best.
