Susan Boen, ELL Teacher

I started working at Washburn in 2014 and have worked in the Minneapolis Public Schools since 2012. I love working at Washburn because it is such a positive environment for learning.

I received my Bacherlor of Arts degree from the University of Minnesota  in International Relations. I went to Bologna, Italy to teach English and ended up staying and living there for seven years. After I came back to Minnesota, I worked in various companies and then decided go to Hamline for my teaching license and Masters degree in ELL. I love teaching all students and I've found that teaching is a very challenging and rewarding profession.

I will be co-teaching two sections of IB HIstory year 1 and three sections of Human Geography. I am working in these classes everyday and giving support for language in these content areas. I love the diversity in our classes so that everyone can appreciate all perspectives.
