My name is Ms. White. I am the Social Emotional Learning Instructional Specialist. This means I coach teachers and student on how to teach and learn skills like getting along with others and knowing your different emotions. I grew up in St. Paul and attended the University of Minnesota to become a teacher. When I first started working for Minneapolis Public Schools, I taught 3rd grade. Since then I have taught 5th, 6th, 1st and 2nd grade. I was even a Media teacher! The best part of my job is learning new things and having students explore topics they are interested in.


I have two boys named Jake and Trevor. Jake is 15 and Trevor is 12. We have a dog named Mukki. He is still a puppy and loves to eat Kleenex! I enjoy riding my bike, going for runs and sewing. On the weekends I teach yoga at the Burnsville YMCA.
