Ms. Rohweller-Kocur

My name is Jody Rohweller-Kocur (Roh-Ko) and this is my 14th year teaching here at Highland Park Senior High. I went to Bemidji State University and graduated with licensure in Social Studies and Theatre and Speech Education. I received my Master's degree in Education from Hamline University. I have been in the St. Paul Public School district for 22 years. I did my student teaching at Humboldt High School, I worked for 7 years at Hazel Park Middle School and was a curriculum coach at the district level for one year. I am very excited and proud to be working at Highland!!

This year I will be teaching one class of 11 IB History of the Americas (HOTA) and four 12 IB 20th Century Topics classes, I am also the advisor the National Honor Society (NHS). When I am not grading essays, I really love to travel. I also enjoy going to plays, hiking, eating at fun restaurants and spending as much time as possible reading and hanging out with my family and now watching both my sons play sports.

If you ever have questions about classes I teach, assignments or anything regarding the National Honor Society, please don't hesitate to contact me at  Assignments and materials will be posted on individual class Schoology pages.
