Ms. Corrine Gilbertson
This is my fifth year at Parkway Montessori Middle School, but my 20th year with Saint Paul Public Schools. I began my first two years of college at Minnesota State University, Moorhead studying graphic communications, but my undergraduate degree in English/Language Arts is from Minnesota State University, Mankato. My master's degree in education with reading endorsement is from Concordia University, Saint Paul. I have my Secondary Montessori certification from CMStep in Cincinnati in partnership with the University of Wisconsin at River Falls.
I am an avid reader of novels that I may be able to recommend to students and I participate in a teacher's book club with former colleagues throughout the district. I am currently teaching Creative Writing, which is an ELA elective course. We use digital tools to tell our stories. This includes writing full stories, using tools to do interviews and green screen technology with our ipads for more creative pieces. We will even be doing some webpage design and computer coding.
