Welcome parents and students to the 2013 - 2014 school year!  My name is Mr. Stokes.  I am looking forward to this school year and having the opportunity to teach your child.  I am beginning my third year at Andersen but, I am not new to teaching.  I have been teaching in the Minneapolis school district for the last 22 years.  Eighteen of those 22 years has been as a third grade teacher at other Minneapolis sites.  

My goal is to help every student have a successful school year!  The expectations will be high.  With your child putting forth his/her best effort and your support, I know this will be a great year!  Feel free to visit the classroom or call if there is a question or concern.  I hope you will welcome phone calls or notes from me to report concerns, or just want to share good news with you.
