Welcome to my classroom website!
My name is Elisa Sanborn, and the 2019-2020 school year will be my first year teaching! I graduated this past summer from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities with my Masters of Education for Social Studies. In 2018, I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, also from the U of M. Go Gophers! I graduated from Blaine High School, student taught and subbed in Coon Rapids Middle School last year, and am excited to be back in the district as an 8th grade Global Studies teacher. In addition to student teaching in 8th grade Global Studies at CRMS last year, I student taught in the Spring at White Bear Lake High School in 9th grade Human Geography, and 10th grade U.S. History and APUSH.
I live in Uptown Minneapolis, but often head home to Coon Rapids to visit my parents, siblings, nieces, and nephews! The youngest of six kiddos, I am super lucky to be an auntie to 9 nieces and 2 nephews (Baby #12 coming in November!). In my free time, I love to walk by Lake Harriet or Bde Maka Ska, see shows at the Guthrie or the Orpheum, or hang out with my family. I also love to travel, and was in Seattle, WA, Vancouver, BC, and Washington, D.C. over the summer.
Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
