About Ms. Thao

ELL Teacher

2nd Grade & 3rd Grade

Welcome! My name is Klee Thao. I'm the English Language Learner teacher in Grade 2 and 3. I love Highwood Hills Elementary School because of the students! I love our students’ energy and motivation for learning! Go Hawks heroes! Students and their families are important to me. Your support from home for education is immense in the work I do. I love that our students come from many different cultures. Thus, I'm glad to be a part of a diverse school. My multilingual/second language acquisition learners are valuable to me. 

Education and Family: I have my Master's Degree in Education from the University of St. Thomas, K-12 English as a Second Language. In my free time, I like to spend it with my family. My son, husband, and I live in Oakdale, MN. We have a responsibility from our culture in Hmong custom to take care of our elders and parents, extended family social events schedule, and keep a flower and vegetable garden at our home.
