I am so excited to be your child's fourth grade teacher this school year. This is my second year at Whittier. I love the community and am thrilled to be back! I have my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Hispanic Studies from the College of St. Benedict (Go Bennies!) and my teaching license in K-6 elementary education from the University of St. Thomas. Prior to receiving my teaching license, I spent a year working with Minnesota Reading Corps as a literacy tutor and as a substitute teacher in St. Cloud area schools. In my free time, I enjoy calligraphy, going for bike rides and walks with my husband, and trying new foods. I am especially passionate about reading, and I enjoy growing my classroom library to ensure that students can experience this same love of books. Every day, I strive to connect students with books that allow them to feel the magic of reading. In doing so, I hope for students to develop the habits of lifelong readers and make significant gains in their academics. Please let me know if you ever need book suggestions for your child! You can contact me whenever at Elizabeth.Mundt@mpls.k12.mn.us.
