Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Jody Rohweller-Kocur (Roh-Ko) and this is my 13th year teaching here at Highland Park Senior High. I went to Bemidji State University and graduated with licensure in Social Studies and Theatre and Speech Education. I received my Master's degree in Education from Hamline University. I have been in the St. Paul Public School district for 21 years. I did my student teaching at Humboldt High School, I worked for 7 years at Hazel Park Middle School and was a curriculum coach at the district level for one year. I am very excited and proud to be working at Highland!!
This year I will be teaching 11 IB History of the Americas (HOTA) and 12 IB 20th Century Topics. I am also the co-advisor for Student Council as well as the National Honor Society. When I am not grading essays, I really love to travel. I also enjoy going to plays, hiking, eating at fun restaurants and spending as much time as possible reading and hanging out with my family.
If you ever have questions about classes I teach, assignments or any extra curricular activities I am involved with, please don't hesitate to contact me. Assignments and materials will be posted on individual class Schoology pages.
