Denise Vernstrom

2nd Grade Teacher

Welcome. I am married and live in Maplewood. I am the mother of 4 grown children and grandmother of 4 grandsons. I worked as a retail manager at both Target and Kohl's before becoming a teacher. My passion for teaching literacy began in 2001 while on a humanitarian trips to Uganda. I have had the opportunity to visit and teach in schools in both Uganda and India. I decided to follow my dream and enrolled in college in 2012 and then graduated from Concordia University in 2015. I taught sixth grade math for 1 year at Achieve and am currently teaching second grade. I LOVE teaching the students at Achieve. I am so glad that I decided to pursue my dream and became a teacher.
