Degrees and Certifications:
Hello and welcome future and current SPPS Online School students. My name is Charlee Thao. I have been a classroom teacher since 2018 and have been on the education scene since 2012. I am very happy to be part of the SPPS Online family.
I received my undergraduate degree in teaching from Saint Cloud State University in 2012. After graduating, I became an advisor at Olson Middle School in Minneapolis for 5 years. In 2018, I received my Masters in elementary education from the University of Saint Thomas.
I love to travel. Places I have visited outside the United States are China, Thailand, Laos, and I've also lived in South Korea for 4 months. Living in different countries and experiencing their cultures, I took what I learned and applied it towards self-improvement and well-being.
As an educator, I am learning new things every day from my peers, students, and families. I believe that everyone has something to give.
Thank you for allowing me to work with your child.
