Welcome to Mrs. Bolander's Website Page
Hellp, my name is Karlyn Bolander and I am the Supplimental Lead teacher at Evergreen Park. I look forward to working with the students, parents and teachers and staff at school. I would like to share a little bit about myself. This is my 15 year at Evergreen and my 24 year of teaching. During my years of teaching I have taught Spanish Immersion for 10 years, 1 year as a Curriculum Coordinator, 6 years as an elementary Spanish teacher and lastly 6 years as a 2nd grade teacher. My current position is as a supplemental teacher. I have the honor and priviledge of going into the Kindegarten through 5th grade classes and help teach small groups in reading and math, focusing speciaifaclly in the areas they need additional support in.
I love teaching but I also love learning. I received my BA at Concordia University in St. Paul, I went on to get my MA at St. Mary's University of Minnesota, my Spanish licensure through the State of Minnesota and lastly my adminstrative degree at St. Mary's University of Minnesota. I hope my love for learning shows as I work with children and their families.On a personal note, I am married to a wonderful man named, Joe. I also have an amazing daughter named Hannah. She is 29 years old and works for the Minnesota History Center. During my free time I love to travel with my husband, garden, go swimming and read "How To" books. I also love giraffes.Thank you for partnering with me in your child's education. I expect to see great thing this year and am excited to continue in my learning as I work at Evergreen. Together we will see many great things this year!Sincerely,Mrs. Bolander
