Mrs. Kinzer

Hello!  I am in my fifth year at Highland Park Senior High. I have been teaching ELL since 2000.  Prior to teaching, I worked in imports for a national retailer.  I earned my Bachelor's of Arts degree and my ELL License at Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota.  I live across the river with my husband and two dogs.  I am lucky to have my son close by in St. Paul.  My daughter, however, moved out of state for her college journey. I enjoy boating, gardening, cooking, reading and spending time with family and friends.  I think I have the best job in the world.  My students amaze and inspire me each day. I hope to do the same for them.


My schedule for the 2023-2024 school year includes:

Co-taught 10th Grade ELA and 10th Grade ELD

Co-taught Physical Science
