Hi, my name is Ann Mills. 2017 is my first year teaching for ISD 518, but is certainly not my first teaching job. I began my teaching career in El Paso, TX in 1989. While in El Paso, I met and married my husband, Dave. He was an active duty army officer so we moved a lot, which meant I had the wonderful opportunity to teach 6th grade through community college level students in Kansas, Ohio, Indiana, Missouri, and finally back to Minnesota.
I earned my BA in biology from the University of Minnesota-Morris. I went on to earn a MS degree in educational leadership from Minnesota State-Mankato, a MS degree in biology from the University of Nebraska- Kearney, and a chemistry credential(20 graduate credits) from Montana State University. I also have some graduate course work in ESL. (I am truly a lifelong learner!) I love to bring my enthusiasm for learning and helping students to the classroom each and every day. Seeing that “aha” moment and students making connections to prior learning drives me to be the best possible teacher that I can be.
In my free time I love to travel, both in the US and abroad. I have visited or lived in 20 different states and territories. I have also had the pleasure of traveling to Ireland, New Zealand and France and living in Australia, England and Russia.
