Welcome to the 2021- 2022 school year with SAP!
Room 1305 works hard during Reader's and Writer's Workshops, having book clubs, learning lots of math, researching different topics and building our community together. We really love to read too!
I'm starting my 25th year with St. Paul Public Schools and am deeply committed to public education. I have taught 8th grade, 5th grade and just love the 2nd graders I'm lucky enough to work with here at St. Anthony Park. Originally from Tucson, Arizona, I'm still a Wildcats Basketball fan, and tend to get a little Mad in March as the college tournament time rolls around. Despite the winters, I have deep roots in St. Paul and am happy to be raising my family here in the Twin Cities. I look forward to working with you and your child this year.
We are so fortunate to have Ms. Althoff, too!
