My name is MarySue Taallerud and I will be teaching English 6 and Minnesota History at Ordean East Middle School the 2016-17 school year.  I have been teaching in Duluth since 1989 beginning as the Spanish teacher at Grant Language Magnet School. I have since taught 6th grade at Morgan Park Middle School and 4th and 5th grades at Nettleton and Lincoln Park Schools. I taught English in Japan with the Duluth Sister City organization and before coming to Ordean East  I taught 3rd grade at Shanghai American School in Shanghai, China. My husband is also a teacher with Duluth Public Schools and we have two children; one attending Ordean East Middle School and one at East High School.  I am excited to add a Minnesota History class to my schedule this year and to once again be reading and writing with 6th graders. I look forward to getting to know your children during the upcoming school year.
