Degrees and Certifications:

5th Grade

My name is Susan Fredrickson, and I am deeply committed to public education. In 5th grade, we are diligently strengthening our comprehension skills and knowledge in Reader's Workshop through non-fiction texts, implementing articulation with foundational mechanics in Writer's Workshop, and exploring conceptual core algorithms. Students utilize voice and choice by understanding where their areas of growth are while establishing self-directed attainable goals.

“Tell me, and I forget, teach me, and I may remember, involve me, and I learn.” ― Benjamin Franklin

I have taught 6th, 5th, and 2nd grades during my tenure in the Saint Paul Public School District. Through the University of Minnesota, I received a Bachelor of Science. From Bethel University, I received a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology and the University of Saint Thomas, my teaching license. In 2007 I received a Fulbright Scholarship to Japan and a 2011 Fund for Teachers grant to Costa Rica. When I am not teaching, international travel is on my list of Must Do. I have visited over twenty countries and have been to all but two continents. A close second to international travel is Golden Retrievers. Walking in the woods, visiting friends, entertaining, and bike riding are other enjoyments.

Working together to master core academic standards, enriching our lives with compassion and kindness toward others are our community goals.
