Hello, I am Ms. Kalkbrenner and I teach 6th grade Physical Science and 6th grade Go For It! (kind of like a pre-AVID!). This is my 6th year teaching, all here at Global Arts Plus! I live in Rush City, Minnesota with my husband and his two kids, Izzy (13 years old) and Brady (9 years old). When I'm not teaching, I enjoy reading, adventures, animals, going out to eat, anything technology, and my cat Oscar. I grew up in Rush City, MN. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Biology from University of Minnesota Duluth and a Master's degree in Teaching from Hamline University. 


I use schoology as our class website. I keep this up to date with the grades, daily activities, homework assignments.

         You can email me at or call/text (612) 454-0378


Students should use a weekly planner to help organize all their assignments. 


Here is Physical Science helpful information and About Me and here is the syllabus for Go For It

I use donorschoose to raise money for special things to have in our classroom, check out my teacher page here


Our classroom has a pet corn snake, his name is Nigel! He is 11 years old and super nice. Click here for a picture of him.
