Mrs. Giselle Spears (2/3 VLS Teacher)
Greetings!!! My name is Giselle Spears. I joined St. Paul Public Schools in 1996 and have had the pleasure of teaching at Crossroads since the fall of 2012. My mom and grandmother were both educators. Teaching is in my blood. I completed both my Masters and English as a Second Language education at the University of St. Thomas...Go Tommies! I have taught third, first and second grade during my tenure as an educator.
I am currently (February 1, 2021) teaching a Second/Third Grade VLS (Virtual Learning School) Class. We are using Seesaw as our learning platform. Students will meet in large group, small group and work independently during VLS. Using technology often improves engagement, knowledge retention and encourages individual learning.
During my personal time I enjoy reading, singing, and taking walks. When possible, I enjoy traveling with my husband visiting family, friends and our daughter (an SPPS alum) that lives in the great northwest. Most of those visits are now Zoom or Facetime calls!
Staying connected is so important. Please contact me with questions, concerns and/or additional information you have that will help support your child in their learning. The best way to reach me is by Seesaw message, once you connect with our class or email.
I am excited and encouraged as this continues to be a year of patience, adapting, growing and lots of Learning!
