Homework & Lesson Plan Link:

The 2016-2017 school year will be my fifth year teaching in Roseau and my ninth year teaching overall, having previously taught in Warroad.  This year I will be teaching all five sections of 7th grade English and am looking forward to meeting the incoming 7th graders and getting our year started in English class.  I will also be teaching a Journalism class and look forward to working with older students once again.

I truly love to teach English because I believe it's a subject that allows you to not just learn about the content but also about yourself, life, culture, etc. We will tackle that learning through a variety of means - papers, projects, presentations, reading from a variety of genres, using technology, and so on.

A little bit about me... I am originally from Middle River, MN. I attended college at the Harvard of the Midwest - NDSU - Go Bison! I am married to a Roseau native, Thor Didrikson, and we have three children, Jonas, Marley, Elin, and a new puppy named Rambler.  Outside of school I enjoy running, reading, cooking & gardening, and Pinterest!

VIP INFO // Staying Connected - I keep Planbook updated weekly with lesson plans for each week and an outline of what the homework will be for the week and when there are any tests, quizzes, or projects coming.  The link to these lesson plans, again, is at the top of this page. 

Remind is an App I utilize to keep parents and students updated on homework and important reminders.  If you would like to get text messages from me regarding 7th grade English, both students and parents, text the number 81010 with the message @ea4hb to join my English 7 class.
