Welcome to Room 329

My name is Amy Walvatne and I am happy to be your child's 5th grade teacher this year!  5th grade is a very exciting and memorable time and I look forward to working with you and your child.  

A bit about me:  I earned by MA in education from the University of Minnesota.  I have been teaching in Minneapolis for 18 years, and I have been lucky to have spent most of those years at Burroughs!  I live near Lake Nokomis with my husband (Mr. Moen!) and my two children:  Lydia and Gus.  When I am not at school I love playing with my kids.  They are growing fast and I am trying to soak up every little moment.  I also enjoy being outdoors:  biking, skiing, running.  This summer we spent time in Grand Marais and did some amazing hikes in the state parks.  We also had many adventures close to home...biking, swimming, roller blading and eating lots of ice cream.  

The best way to contact me is via email at amy.walvatne@mpls.k12.mn.us.
