Welcome to Fifth Grade and Team Ottino! I have had the privilege of teaching for St. Paul Public Schools for 29 years! I have taught 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th. I have also served as a coach in the areas of literacy, math, and behavior. I have a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education, a Masters degreee in Instructional Systems and Technology, and a Doctorate degree in Educational Policy and Administration.
In addition to teaching 5th grade I also teach two graduate level courses for Hamine University. I teach Culturally Relevant Pedagogy and Managing the Urban Classroom.
I live in Hudson, WI with my husband and two therapy dogs Bella and Sadie. We also have a new dog that we were fostering and decided to adopt. His name is Rhett and is learning how to behave as a member of a famiy. I enjoy gardening, reading, travel and spending time with family and friends.
