Welcome! My name is Mrs. Currier and I'm the Math Specialist at Elizabeth Hall International School. I co-teach mathematics with the fourth teachers. Sometimes this means I'm in the room, teaching a lesson to the class or supporting the classroom teacher. Other times, I bring a small group back to my room where we work together. In addition to teaching in the classrooms, I work with small groups during WIN time. WIN stands for What I Need. It is a time when students' needs are met in different ways. Right now I'm working with a group of students who are ready to take on extra challenges.
I have not always been a math specialist, but I've always loved math. For most of my career, I've taught fourth through sixth grade. I began my career in Minneapolis, taught in Prior Lake and Faribault, and have now returned to where
I have always loved learning. I earned a degree in German Literature from Carleton College. A few years later, I earned my B.S. in Elementary Education from the University of Minnesota. After that, I worked as a research assistant for Dr. Tom Post and did graduate work in Mathematics Education. Later on, after my own children were older, I returned to school and got my Master's in Teaching and Learning from St. Mary's University.
When I'm not teaching, I love working with my hands. In the summers, I spend time in my wood shop. I have made much of the furniture in my home and love fixing up my house. I also love sewing, baking, gardening and entertaining. I have been married for 30 years to my wonderful husband Ross. We have two grown daughters, Athena and Phoebe, and two dogs, Dixie and Traveler.
