Welcome to Kindergarten at Groveland Park Elementary! My name is Melissa Norenberg. I have been teaching in St. Paul Public Schools since October 2000. I have been teaching Kindergarten at Groveland Park Elementary since 2016. I have a BS in Elementary Education from the University of Minnesota, Duluth and a MAED in Education from Hamline University. I am trained in Reading Recovery as well.
When I am not teaching, I like to read, scrapbook, make cards and spend time with my family. I also enjoy fishing and spending time at the lake in northern Minnesota. I enjoy going for walks and bike rides with my family. I live in Hugo, Minnesota. I am married and have one daughter. In the summer I enjoy working on projects around my house and spending as much time as possible with my family at the lake.
I love being a part of the Groveland Park Elementary Community. I enjoy spending my day with 5 and 6 year olds! Their enthusiasm, creativity and love of learning is contagious and makes our day full of fun and laughter! Groveland Park has a great community of students and families who are supportive and make this a great place to be! I believe with the help and support of families, all students can achieve and be successful.
