My first connection with MTS was as a parent in the fall of 1996. The elementary and middle schools were located a block from my house and I was eager for my 6th grade son to attend a new school. He was an MTS student for 3 years and he received excellent attention from his teachers and a lot of small group instruction.
In the fall of 1998, I was hired on as the kindergarten teacher and taught Kindergarten for 4 years. I have continued to teach at MTS and am serving as a Title One teacher. After becoming a licensed reading specialist through Hamline University, I am trained to work with students in all aspects of their reading development.
The most rewarding part of my job is getting to know our children and families. Each year, the Title One staff plans 3 family events. This year we have hosted a “Reading Extravaganza Carnival,” and a “Parent Valentine’s Day Breakfast.” We are looking forward to our student, “Spring Portfolio Night.” Occasionally, I get to see my first year kindergarten students who are now young adults. Many of their nieces, nephews, siblings and cousins are now attending MTS elementary!
