Ms. Norenberg

Welcome to Kindergarten at Groveland Park Elementary.  My name is Melissa Norenberg.  This is my 18th year of teaching in the St. Paul Public Schools.  This is my second year of teaching Kindergarten at Groveland Park.  I have a Bachelor’s of Science, as well as a Master’s of Education.  I am trained in Reading Recovery. 

 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!  Our day is full of short mini lessons, differentiated and individualized tasks in literacy and math, as well as hands-on learning centers.
