Hello! My name is Dena Wheeler and I'm excited to work with the students, families, and staff of Jie Ming Mandarin Immersion Academy. The elementary years are full of wonder and magic and they can also be difficult. Thankfully, we don't have to navigate this alone. A big part of my work is to support children and families through stressful situations and to celebrate growth!
I have worked with St. Paul Schools for over 10 years. Prior to that, I earned my BA from UW-Madison and my Masters in Social Work from Augsburg College.
Outisde of work you can find me enjoying nature with my family, including my dogs. I also like yoga and reading.
