Mrs. Nasha Thoreson

Hello third grade students and families,

My name is Nasha Thoreson, and I am very excited to be a third grade teacher at Maxfield Elementary this school year. This will be my sixth year of teaching third grade and my second year in the Saint Paul Public School District. I have received both my bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Winona State University. When I am not at school, I love to spend time at home with my husband and two cats. We enjoy watching movies, playing board games, and taking long bike rides. I also love to sew and have been trying to learn piano.

Students, I cannot wait to share this year of learning with you! Many wonderful educational milestones happen in third grade. Together, we will explore multiplication, division, tons of writing, reading chapter books and so much more. One of my favorite parts of the school year is enjoying our large classroom library and reading exciting novels together.

Parents, while you may not be in our classroom as often as the students are, you are a valued and important member of our community. I look forward to getting to know each of you and including you in our classroom. All parents and guardians are welcome and encouraged to attend various school events, including fall & spring conferences. I encourage all of you to contact me with questions, concerns, or just to introduce yourself at any time. I look forward to working with you to help each of our students learn!
