Degrees and Certifications:
B.A. in Elementary Education, Psychology and Anthropology from Hamline Univeristy.
My name is Liz Casperson, this is my fifth year teaching at Hamline Elementary! I am very excited to be part of the fourth grade team as well as the Hamline Community. I also teach computer skills, designing and art afterschool during my EDL yearbook class. My love and passion for teaching really started to grow at Hamline Elementary, but my dream of being a teacher started way back when I was in elementary school. I believe the impact of a good teacher can last a life time. In my classroom it is my promise that each child gets what they need in order to be successful, feel safe and feel loved. All are welcome in my room.
I recieved my B.A. in Elementary Education, Psychology and Anthropology from Hamline University. I am currently working on my masters of Education with a focus on Literacy from Hamline University. While I was an undergrad at Hamline Univeristy, I was a tutor here at Hamline Elementary for all four years! I worked with kindergarten, first grade and with ELL students. I know first hand how helpful tutors can be for students and teachers and how much these Hamline Tutors impact student lives. Hamline Elementary is wonderful and unique as a whole, the beauty of adding the collaboration with Hamline University is what makes this school so very special.
In my spare time I love to: read, play with my extremely energetic puppies (Roger and Annie), go fishing, watch football/baseball, listen to music as well as play the flute, arts & crafts, painting and baking desserts!
