About Mrs. Woods

Hello, my name is Tina Woods and I am an ELL (English Language Learner)  teacher for Second and Third Grade.  I started my teaching career in Waianae, Hawaii and have been teaching in the Saint Paul Public Schools since 1996. I have been teaching ELL for three years and previously taught Kindergarten – Fourth Grade as a classroom teacher. My focus is for each English Language Learner to be confident in the areas of speaking, listening, reading, and writing in English. 

I am a Navy Veteran of 11 years active duty/ reserve duty combined. Respect, responsibility, and honor are core values that I have kept from my military experience. In my free time I enjoy family time with my two daughters and grandchildren, being in the sun, reading, and water exercise classes.

I love Highwood Hills because… 

It is a small community school with a big heart. All the staff are dedicated to instructing students in multiple approaches to meet their learning style with high rigor activities. We use hands on manipulatives, technology, and discussions as a few ways to engage our learners. 

I communicate with families by... 

email or call the school office 651-744-3290. Thank you for your support and efforts at home! We are all in this together to do the best for your child.
