Welcome to Second Grade! My name is Kristen Mandt and I am so excited to be teaching 2nd grade here at Achieve Language Academy. I have been a teacher for over 20 years and have taught in a variety of settings, primarily working with students who are English Language Learners. I have a Master's Degree and an additional license in teaching Reading from Hamline University.
I have a 2 year old daughter named Ella, and we live in St. Paul not far from Achieve! We love to play outside with neighbor friends, go to the playground, and sing and dance all the time.
I'm looking forward to meeting each one of you and spending the school year together.
