Welcome to our English as a Second Language Website
    My name is Jodi Hamre, and  I'm thrilled to be starting my eighth year of teaching at University Avenue Elementary School.  I graduated from Augsburg College and St. Cloud State with degrees in Psychology and Elementary Education. Also, I completed my English as a Second Language Degree at Hamline University in St. Paul.
    I love to learn about different cultures and travel throughout the world. I've enjoyed teaching a variety of grade levels in England, Wisconsin and Minnesota.
    Some of my hobbies include biking, kayaking, reading and walks with my dog, Murray Joe. I enjoy spending time at the lake with friends and family in Alexandria and Brainerd, MN.
    Thank you for supporting your child's education! I'm excited to work with you and your child in developing their language and academics.
    Together, we can help your child achieve great success!
