Ms. Molly Power Theisen

Hello! My name is Ms. Molly Power Theisen and I've been teaching in St. Paul since 1996. I also spent one year teaching in Seattle and another in Orono, MN.  There is another teacher at JHS who was my student when she was in 9th grade. Can you guess who!? If you find out, stop by and see me for a prize :)

Teaching is definitely my calling.  I knew all my life that I would be a teacher. I received my B.A. in English and Education at Hamline University and my M.A. in Education from Lesley University. I can't picture myself in any other occupation. I am also teaching AVID because I love to help kids be successful in all their classes. 

My other loves are first and foremost, my family. I have a wonderful husband, who is also a teacher, and three sweet children, who attend school in SPPS. I also love to read, write, travel, cook, and garden and snuggle my puppy. 

Teaching you how to read thoughtfully and write beautifully is among the most important things I can think of--and the most fun, too.

You should not hesitate to email me if you have questions:
