Ms. Ellen Brand

Hello! 

My Name is Ellen Brand. The students call me either Ms. Ellen or Ellen. I am a Children's House teacher in the Oak Tree Classroom. I graduated from Hamline University with a degree in elementary education and Psychology. I also studied ceramics throughout collage. I am currently getting my masters and Montessori training (AMS) from the University of Wisconsin, River Falls. Something that I love about Cherokee Heights is the community. Community is important for me as a teacher and person. Outside of school I enjoy pottery, sewing, knitting and many other crafts. I also value being outside through hiking, camping, snowshoeing and skiing.
