About the teacher

Hello, my name is Ms. Linda Funmaker.  

I have a BS degree in English from the University of Minnesota and my teaching license from Augsburg College. I got my preschool certification from Concordia College.  I have six children of my own and two granddaughters (5 & 6).  I live in Minneapolis and my children have all gone through the Minneapolis Public Schools.

I have taught High Five in three other schools.  I also was a Reading Resource teacher, PreK-2, at Lucy Laney, helping students with basic literacy skills.
I believe children have the ability to engage in learning when they feel comfortable and safe.  I also believe in teaching  in a wide variety of ways in order to reach children with different learning styles.  My goal is for children to have a positive first school experience so they are excited about continuing learning in school.  

Please call if you have concerns or thoughts about your child.  I also welcome parents and guardians to visit my classroom!
