Hello! I’m Ms. Knutson and this year you will find me in Room 200! I work primarily with 4th grade but also have one class of 5th-8th graders. This is my 12th year teaching and my 4th year at Jefferson. I received my Bachelor’s in teaching ESL from Bethel University and my Master’s in ESL and Reading from Hamline University. Before teaching in MPS, I taught in White Bear Lake, Richfield, and Ensenada, Mexico. When I’m not teaching I love to read, garden, cook, exercise, and spend time with my husband, 3 kids and 2 kitties. I'm excited for another great year!
