Madame Kelsey Wolf

Welcome! Bienvenue!

I am excited to join the first grade team this year! I just wrapped up six years in third grade, and before THAT, I was in kindergarten here at Normandale for six years. It is hard for me to believe, but this is my seventeenth year of teaching! 

First grade is a great age. The students are curious, excited about just about everything, and eager to achieve a new degree of independence. They have a wonderful foundation in the French language because of the talented kindergarten teachers here at Normandale. It is a wonder to hear six- and seven-year-olds speaking and thinking aloud in French everyday!

I am a strong believer in the power of writing to expand and strengthen children's thinking and intend to share this passion with my students. I also want to instill confidence in my students to be strong readers and writers. 

When not at school, I enjoy yoga, long walks, volunteering for Habitat for Humanity, working on my St. Paul bungalow, spending time in my home state of Montana, seeing live music, and traveling. Please contact me if you have any questions or want to introduce yourself. On y va!
