Room 205 -- Sue Maxa

Hi my name is Sue Maxa.  I have been teaching in Minneapolis for 22 years.  I have been at Marcy for 10 years.  I went to the University of Wisconsin-Madison for my undergraduate work.  I have a degree in Geography and Environmental Studies.  I went on to the University of Minnesota for a masters degree in Environmental Education and Elementary Education.  Before I started teaching in Minneapolis I was a naturalist at several nature centers in the Twin Cities including Dodge Nature Center, Springbrook Nature Center and Camp St. Croix.  I have also taught at nature centers in Aspen, Colorado and Virginia Beach, Virginia.

I have taught every grade from kindergarten through sixth and my favorite grades to teach are third and fourth!  I love the students eagerness to learn and their sense of adventure.  I look forward to  going richer and deeper into the curriculum as we go through fourth grade together.

I live in the Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis with my husband Pete and 2 kids, Simon and Clara.  I also have a dog named Zoey.  I love to be outside biking, skiing, walking, and playing tennis.  I also enjoy reading, cooking, and traveling.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
