Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Alyssa Flaten, and I have been teaching at Chelsea Heights my entire career of a short seven years! My first year at Chelsea Heights I taught Kindergarten, the following two years I taught 4th grade, then 5th grade for four years, and now I am teaching a 4th and 5th grade split classroom. Hooray for the next adventure! Before becoming a teacher, I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of St. Thomas where I majored in Science and Mathematics for Elementary Education. I also have completed my Master's Degree from Concordia University in Educational Technology.
When I am not at Chelsea Heights I enjoy reading, watching the Green Bay Packers play football, and watching Netflix. I also love to do anything and everything outside, including running! I have run a few half marathons in my time and thoroughly enjoy being one of the last people to finish.
I currently live in Saint Paul, MN with my family. I have twin toddler daughters that keep me busy, but being a parent continues to be the biggest blessing in my life!
Chelsea Heights is a wonderful place to work and a fabulous school. The staff is supportive and helpful, and our students/families make coming to work FUN each and every day!
