Annamary Boler - Special Education Resource Teacher
AnnaMary


I began teaching at Loring Community School in September 2007 and have enjoyed working here.  I worked as a special education teacher in Minneapolis from 1994 to 1997 and 2003 to the present.  From 1997 to 2000 I worked as a special education teacher in Cairo, Egypt.  From 2000 to 2003 I provided day care in my home and stayed home with my son and daughter, now 13 and 11. I graduated in 1994 with a Masters in Special Education from the University of Minnesota. 

One of my favorite things to do is read stories aloud to my children.  One of my favorite books is The Last Dragon.  I also like swimming, biking, hiking, camping, and traveling.  I had a full and fun summer.  I took the hardest but best trip ever.  My family and I paddled around the Boundary Waters for four days.  We also walked over eleven miles while carrying canoes or backpacks on our back.  It felt great to be completely exhausted by the end of the day.  I was also very proud of how my children handled the challenge.  I look forward to sharing this story with my students and hearing about each one's summer.

I enjoy working with students.  I have worked with kids in some form or another from the time I began babysitting at age 12.  I have worked as a camp counselor, life guard, and youth group leader.  I really enjoy working with students in small group settings.  I believe in continuous educational and social growth.  All children (and adults) are learners. I like to help students build on the skills they already have. 

Currently, I am working with all grade levels providing academic and social skills support.
