¡Saludos! Greetings!

My name is Lindsay Brooks.  I am so pleased to be working with students and their families at Andersen United! As an ESL teacher, my time is split between co-teaching in kindergarten and 5th grade, with a science and social studies content focus.  My education includes a B.A. in Global Studies and Spanish Language, as well as an M.Ed. in Second languages and Cultures, both from the University of Minnesota. Prior to teaching in Minneapolis, I taught English as a Foreign Language while living in my husband's home country of Ecuador.  I am thrilled to be a new mother and am excited to see how our baby girl’s language develops in our bilingual home.  One of my favorite quotes is, 'A child's smile is the same in any language.'  Please feel free to contact me via email at Lindsay.brooks@mpls.k12.mn.us
