5th Grade English Teacher - Team 5A

My name is Chris Soderberg and this is my 14th year teaching at the Kasson-Mantorville Middle School. Before joining the K-M school district I taught at Rochester Off Campus Charter School for 5 years. I also have 2 years of experience teaching 5th and 6th grade in Mora, MN. I graduated from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN in 1991 with an Elementary Education degree. Since then, I've expanded my licensure at the University of Minnesota so I am able to teach grades 1-8.

I spent my first nine years at Kasson-Mantorville teaching in the P.R.I.D.E. program. This program was set up when I was hired to serve students who are struggling academically, but do not qualify for special education services. For three years, I worked in the area of reading with grades 5-8.

This will be my third year teaching with team 5A and I'm excited to work with almost 80 5th graders and 20 advisory students.  I will be teaching English again and look forward to another year of good books and great students. I love to read and I hope to pass on that joy of reading to our 10 and 11 year olds at K-M!
