Welcome! My name is Jennifer Carroll. This is my 21st year teaching secondary English Language Arts (ELA) and my 13th year in the Anoka-Hennepin School District. Coon Rapids Middle School is a great place to teach and learn.
I am a graduate of St. Cloud Technical High School, and earned a Bachelor's degree (BA) in English at the University of Minnesota-Duluth (UMD) and a Master's degree (M.Ed) at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. Most recently, I earned my K-12 reading license at Hamline University.
Some of my favorite things to teach and explore with students are writing, poetry and non-fiction reading strategies. I love watching students discover their reading lives. In my free time, I puzzle over The New York Times Crossword, read fiction and news, and drink lots of coffee. With my family, I enjoy biking, camping and hiking, movies and lots of library visits.
