Meet Our Principal, Denise Wells

For the past 30 years, Denise has served in a number of roles across Minneapolis Public Schools, from district mentor to school principal.  In each of her positions, Denise has advocated for bilingual students and their families. Here at Andersen United Community School, Wells recently received the Advocate for Bilingual Education Award at the 2013 Minnesota ESL, Bilingual and MIgrand Education Conference of the Minnesota Department of Education.

"I am really passionate about bilingual education because by 2050 immigrant children will make up one third of the nation's children. I believe we need to celebrate that bilingualism. Every child who is bilingual brings a gift to us."
