Hi! I'm Annie Sjoholm, and I am thrilled to be teaching at Minnehaha Academy, my alma mater! This will be my first year at Minnehaha Academy. I am coming from White Bear Lake Area schools where I taught 7th grade American History and 11th and 12th grade World History and Economics. Prior to teaching in White Bear, I also taught in Rochester, MN and Connecticut. I have a B.A. in History and Social Studies Education from Bethel University and hope to start my M.A. in Education soon.
My mission as a social studies teacher is to encourage confidence, relate the Christian faith, inspire creativity and determination, and offer support so that each individual student can attain academic excellence.
When not in the classroom, I enjoy time with family and friends, reading, theater, and running. I also enjoy traveling when I have the opportunity.
I am so grateful to be part of a school that provides high quality education while integrating the Christian faith. I am very excited to see what God has planned for this new school year!
