A bit about me: 

My name is Andry Sitara Ulrich DeJong, and this is my third year teaching  English at Washburn High School. I graduated from Carleton College in 2015 with a Bachelor's Degree in English Literature and a concentration in Education and in French. I received my teaching license in Communication Arts and Literature during my undergraduate studies as well.

I grew up in India and Madagascar. As a result, I love to travel (so far 16 countries) and I am fluent in Tamil and French. I currently live in south Minneapolis where I enjoy making use of the bike trails, coffee shops, and libraries.

My goals as a teacher are to help students immerse themselves in narratives beyond what they've experienced, to hone their skills of eloquence and clear communication, and to build their empathy and understanding of others.
