Welcome to 5th Grade!
Ms. Hutchinson

My name is Joan Hutchinson and I have been teaching in the Minneapolis School District since 1997. I have taught students from High 5 all the way up through 8th grade. My licensure is Elementary Education K-6 and Reading Specialist K-12. My undergraduate degree is from Augsburg College and my Master's degree is from Concordia University. I have heard wonderful things about Lyndale and I am looking forward to teaching here beginning this year in room 202!

On a more personal note I am an artist, an animal lover, and a movie buff. I lived in Europe for two years in elementary school, so I really understand what it is like to be a student in a classroom taught in a language not my own. I love to travel and have been to 16 countries so far and look forward to adding more to that list.

The best way to reach me is by email at joan.hutchinson@mpls.k12.mn.us. Please be aware that I might not be able to read your email until after students have left for the day, so if it is urgent contact me at 612-668-4000.
