Hello! My name is Mrs. Laura Clausen and I am one of the Third Grade teachers at Highland Park Elementary. This is my 12th year teaching in St. Paul Public Schools and my 9th year at HPE.
I graduated from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities with a B.A. in Art in 1997 and from St. Thomas University with a B.A. in Marketing in 2003. I went on to work in property management and sales, only to realize my true passion (and coming from a family of teachers) is to work with kids. I then received my Masters Degree in Teaching from Hamline University in 2006.
I was born and raised in St. Paul, attending St. Paul Public Schools. I live in St. Paul's Como Park neighborhood with my husband Nick, our 8-year-old son Noah (he's in 3rd grade here at HPE!), and our 9-year-old German Shepard. I love to go camping, travel, yoga, tennis, do home improvement projects, and spend time with my family.
I look forward to getting to know all my students and their families. Please feel free to come by our classroom or contact me with any questions or concerns!
