Katie Solberg, ESL Teacher
Ms. Solberg

Hi, I’m Katie Solberg!  I am a teacher of English as a Second Language (ESL) at Whittier. I will be teaming with the first grade teachers this year to help develop academic language and vocabulary. Even if your child does not receive ESL services, he or she will get to know me as a second teacher in their first grade class. I am excited to get to know you and your child throughout the year!


I earned my initial teaching licensure from Hamline University and started teaching ESL in January 2007. Before my life as a teacher, I was an assistant editor for a Twin Cities weekly alternative newspaper. I have a B.A. in Journalism from the University of Minnesota.

I enjoy the outdoors and the indoors, whatever the season. In my spare time, you might find me knitting, drinking coffee, doing yoga, dog walking, listening to music, hiking, cross-country skiing, kayaking, traveling, reading, or relaxing with my cat on my lap.
