Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Grace Herndon, but the children call me Ms. Grace.
I grew up in East Grand Forks, a small town in northern Minnesota…BRRRRR!! After completing my undergrad at University of Minnesota Duluth, I went on to get my Master’s in Elementary Education from Hamline University. For the past 5 years I have been a program manager with Reading Partners, a literacy intervention in schools throughout Saint Paul. I am passionate about providing an equitable education for all children.
Outside of work I love spending time with my family, my nephew being a big part of my life. I also enjoy being active, I grew up playing hockey and continue to play every Thursday night. While at home you can find me, cooking, reading, or gardening. I am always open to new recipes and book recommendations.
In our classroom this year we will study reading, writing, math, social studies, science, and so much more. Maria Montessori believed in the power of storytelling to ignite students' interests in many topics.
