Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to First Grade at Chelsea Heights! I am looking forward to being your child's teacher this year. I have been teaching in St.Paul since 1991 and at Chelsea Heights since 2010. I have an U Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education (K-6) from Concordia University and a Master's degree in Curriculum Studies (beginning reading ) from Hamline University. I have been fortunate to teach my favorite grades: Kindergarten and first grade.
My husband and I have two grown sons, a lovely daughter-in-law and three (soon four) grandchildren. We have been blessed! I grew up in this neck-of-the-woods and have many fond memories of going to Como Zoo and the State Fair. My dad still lives just a block away from Chelsea Heights!
My family lived in Como Park for 18 years and my oldest son, Robby, went to Chelsea Heights. He thrived here and received a great elementary education, just as your child will. My son is still close friends with the kids he met at Chelsea Heights. That is the beauty of a neighborhood school.
First grade is a year of great learning and growth. I am always amazed when I look back over the course of the school year and see how much each child has developed intellectually, socially and emotionally. I am thrilled and honored be a part of this process with your child.
Our classroom will be filled with exciting things going on all year long. I know there will be many questions and concerns you will have along the way, so please feel free to contact me by e-mail (Lisa.Arcand@spps.org) or phone (651) 293-8790.
Thank you for choosing Chelsea Heights for your child's elementary education. I am looking forward to working in partnership with you to provide your child with the best educational experience he or she can possibly have.
Truly, Lisa Arcand
