Welcome to our Classroom Website
Hi, My name is Michelle Kalina. This is my second year at Franklin. I have been a speech language pathologist for 17 years, 15 of them in the Anoka-Hennepin school district. Before moving to Minnesota, I worked at a hospital and rehabilitation center in Oconto, Wisconsin. Yes, I am a converted Vikings and Gophers fan. I received my MA in Speech Language Pathology from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and have worked at University Ave, Rum River, Madison, Eisenhower and Adams Elementary Schools.
In my free time, I love to travel, knit, spin my own yarn on my spinning wheel, play with my cats Pearl and Ruby and practice my German and Russian skills on anyone who will listen.
