Music - Ms. Anna
I started playing instruments and making music at an early age, and this evolved into my passion for sharing the joys of music with children. Over the past two years, I have enjoyed watching the students learn and grow in their musical understanding and experiences. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my 20-lb. rescue cat, Eddie. I am so excited to begin my third year teaching music at LIFE Prep!
DAPE & P.E. - Ms. Wilson
Hola! This is my 8th year teaching at LIFE Prep and my 19th year teaching. I enjoy road trips with my doggie Belle, running, traveling abroad, canoeing the BWCA, photography, dancing and SPORTS GALORE! SKOL! #AllKindBeKind
Title 1 (K-2) - Ms. Laura
This is my fifth year teaching Title I Reading at LIFE Prep and I recently finished my Reading Specialist Certification at St. Scholastica. The best part about teaching is seeing the excitement in our students' faces when they gain confidence in reading. Nothing makes my heart happier! I love the East Coast, especially Boston College, which is where I went to school and played ice hockey. Go Eagles! When I’m not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, our daughter, and our dog, Magnolia. I also love to run and spend time at the lake. I am very excited for the new school year ahead.
Title 1 (3-6) - Ms. Ellie
This is my seventh year teaching and my fifth year teaching Title I Reading at LIFE Prep. I recently finished my Reading Specialist Certification at St. Scholastica. I love working with students in a small group setting and changing their ideas about reading. Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my two kids and my husband. Other things I enjoy are coffee, cuddling with my two cats, and exploring more of St. Paul and Minneapolis. I am very excited about the school year ahead.
EL Teacher - Ms. Brinkman
Hi, Though I’ve been teaching for 26 years (EL, preschool, art, 5th gr. and 2nd gr.), I’m starting my third year here at LIFE Prep as the EL teacher and I’m excited to watch my students grow in their English Language development.
I love all aspects of the Arts and Sciences and always need my fix of coffee and chocolate ;) !
