Explore the power of books! Through independent and group reading, word games and discussions, we’ll discover the excitement in reading and writing. Focus is on reading fluency, comprehension, analysis and vocabulary development. We will begin and end each day with a group “campfire” to spark our creativity and reflect on our achievements.
My name is Kristen Rasmussen and I am a 6th Grade English teacher at Orono Middle School. This May, I am finishing my second year at Orono. Before Orono, I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, and I student-taught at Woodbury Middle School and Stillwater Area High School. I am currently pursuing my K-12 Reading Licensure from Hamline University to be able to help my 6th graders grow their love of reading. Outside of school, I enjoy hiking, being outdoors, playing trivia, and reading whenever possible. I look forward to a summer of reading and relaxation!
