Thank you for visiting my teacher space. My name is Annie Strupeck, and I am a proud member of the ELL Department at Como Park Senior High School. I am originally from the Chicago area, but have lived in St. Paul for over 25 years. I have been teaching with St. Paul Public Schools for 20 years. I am dual-licensed in English Language Arts (ELA) and English as a Second Language (ESL). This year, I am teaching 1 section of Level 2 ELL with English Language Development. I am also co-teaching 1 section of English Language Arts 9 with Ms. Kathy Romero.
I graduated from the University of St. Thomas with a B.A. in English and Secondary Education Licensure. After teaching English in Japan for 15 months, I returned to St. Paul and started teaching ESL. I completed my ESL licensure and M.A. ESL at Hamline University. I have taught elementary, middle school, and adult students, but most of my teaching experience has been with high school immigrants and refugees. I love working with students, learning about each individual, and helping them grow and achieve their goals.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my two young children (ages 7 and 9), traveling, cooking, cycling, and being in nature.
I keep all of my assignment grades on Schoology.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me about anything related to student needs or English class.
My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. My office hours are 2:00 - 3:00 Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. The Google Meet CODE for my Office Hours is: CPHSStrupeckOfficeHours
I look forward to working with you this year!
