In Mrs. VanVoorhis’ class, students learn about the world that we live in, from our local history and government in Minnesota Studies, to our global interdependence in Global Studies and AP World History. In her class, students learn and grow to be smart, engaged, and conscientious citizens of the world.
History nerd at heart, with a particular interest in 1960s social and political movements, Mrs. Van Voorhis teaches Social Studies (including AP World History) at Creative Arts. Ask her about 1968 and she'll talk your ear off. She is also a diehard Beatles fan and general live music aficionado. She loves to travel and explore new places and experience different cultures — so far, Berlin has been one a favorite, and Morocco and Vietnam are high on the list of places to experience). Ms. Van Voorhis also dabbles in home interior design and baking and lives in Oakdale with her husband and dog.
