Mrs. Barb Hvidhyld
My name is Barb Hvidhyld and I LOVE teaching reading and writing because kids LOVE reading and writing!
This is my third year at Jie Ming Mandarin Immersion Academy. Thank you so much for your kindness the last 2 years and I look forward to working with more of you this year. I have been teaching in SPPS 20+ years. I grew up in the midway of St. Paul and recieved my Bachelors Degree from the University of St. Catherine in St. Paul and a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from St. Cloud University.
I currently live in Roseville with my wonderful husband who actually attended school in this same building many moons ago. We have four children who keep us busy! We have successfuly moved two through the college experience and have two to go! Then what? Well my husband and I enjoy the outdoors, biking, hiking, fishing, and almost anything outside.
This year I will be meeting with all the second, third, fouth, and fifth graders everyday for 50 minutes each. We will be covering english reading and several genres of writing as well. Because of the limited time it is important that students are reading at home nightly. Please have books at your child's reading level to practice and to build stamina, or share a harder favorite book with your child as a read aloud.
