Greetings First Grade Parents! 

    Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!  My name is Heather Bronder.  I have been working in the Anoka-Hennepin School district since 2006.  This will be my 9th year teaching first grade.  Prior to this, I worked with students in 1-5th grade as a Title 1 teacher at Hamilton Elementary.  I am currently attending graduate school at St. Mary’s University of Minnesota.  I will graduate in May 2020 with a Master’s of Education degree in Teaching and Learning.   


    My husband Jake and I live in Saint Louis Park with our son Liam.  Jake works as a structural engineer for Hennepin County Works in Medina.  Liam is 9 years old and going into 4th grade.  He attends a spanish immersion school in Minnetonka.

     In the classroom, I will encourage teamwork, problem solving, independence, kindness, respect, and a love for learning.  The students and I will be sure to laugh and enjoy ourselves as we are learning!
    I want to thank you for supporting your child's education! I am excited to work with your child and help them grow academically and socially!  Together we can help your child achieve success!
