Welcome English Learners Department!

Ms. Mladnick's Class

Hi everyone I am Mrs. Mladnick and I am one of the ELD teachers here at MMSA. I  am native to Minnesota and grew up about 30 minutes north of Saint Paul, in Forest Lake. I am a graduate of Minnesota State University Moorhead, and have completed further training in English Language Education through Language Corps. I am deeply passionate about teaching in part because I had difficulties learning when I was a young student. I was lucky enough to have a really excellent & passionate teacher who made a big difference in my life and instilled in me the joys of reading and language. I hope that I can be a changemaker for my students as well. I am thrilled to be able to learn about East African culture and honored to have the opportunity to teach Somali students. I love experiencing the joy, wonder and pride my students feel when they master a new skill or grasp a new concept. This year I am looking forward to developing strong connections with my students and learning more about Somali culture, as well as being part of this vibrant and collaborative learning community we are creating here at MMSA!
