Hello! My name is Paula Bangert and I am excited about teaching 4th grade this year. It is hard to believe I am coming into my 12th year of teaching in St Paul Public Schools. I previously taught at The Heights Community School for 6 years in grades 3 & 6. At Chelsea, I have been in 4th grade for the past 6 years. I majored in Elementary Education w/K-8 mathematics specialty. I also completed my Master's there in Educational Technology.
I live in Shoreview with my husband, Matt, and my dog, Ellie. Our twin daughters just graduated from college and come home as often as they are able. Lydia graduated from UW Madison and will be starting Physicians Assistant school at Marquette in May. Her twin, Emma, graduated with a BA in Nursing from the University of North Dakota. She will be joining her sister in Milwaukee and working at one of the hospitals there.
When I am not at Chelsea, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I absolutely love anything involved with the outdoors; bike riding, walking my dog, reading, gardening, and kayaking. We also love spending time together at our cabin in Wisconsin.
Chelsea Heights is such a great school and a wonderful place to call my 'teaching home'. The staff and parents are very supportive and the students make me laugh every day. This is what makes my job so awesome.
