Anne BolsemWelcome to Kindergarten at GEMS!  I am very excited to return for my second year of kindergarten after working district-wide as a Instructional Peer Coach for the previous two years. I love GEMS and have called it my home since 1998, teaching both first and second grades as a traditional classroom, a multiage group, and a looping model. After teaching kindergarten for the first time last year, I found a new age group to love! This school year will be filled with adventure and learning!

I completed my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education at the University of Northwestern, then earned my Master's degree in Reading and Literacy from Walden University. In 2014, I completed my Doctorate of Education in Teacher Leadership, also from Walden University.

I have two boys, a first grader and a fourth grader, so we have a lot of activity in our house! I also have a German Shepherd puppy, named Nero, who loves kids. During my free time, I enjoy spending time with husband and Action Boys, reading, cooking, and being outside in nature.

I look forward to learning and growing with your child this year in kindergarten! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns!

Hay intérpretes disponibles para comunicarse con el personal de la escuela. Por favor contáctese con Xiomara Medina al teléfono 651-403-8119 o a su correo electrónico xiomara.medina-calderon@isd197.org
