Welcome to the world of languages

¡Hola! My name is Jamie Simon Linkowitz, and I am the Spanish teacher. I am originally from Eagan, which is a suburb of St. Paul. After high school, I went to Concordia College in Moorhead, MN. During my junior year of college, I attended La Universidad de Navarra in Pamplona, Spain. In May 1998, I graduated with a degree in Spanish education.

After graduation, I taught in St. Paul Public Schools for 12 years. I taught 9 years at Hazel Park Middle School Academy, and 3 years at Central High School. During this time, I also earned my master's degree in Teaching Second Languages and Cultures from the University of Minnesota. While teaching in St. Paul, I had the opportunity to travel with students to Spain, Costa Rica, and Argentina.

In 2010, I moved to Park Rapids, and began working in Sebeka in 2013. My day is shared between Menahga and Sebeka Schools. I am in Menahga in the mornings, and in Sebeka in the afternoons. It is easiest to get ahold of me by email...jsimon@g.sebeka.k12.mn.us
