Jane Brandt, Kindergarten, Third, & Fourth Grade Collaborative Teacher, Speech-Language Pathologist & Special Education Teacher: Learning Disabilities

I have taught at Dowling School since 1983.  I have a Master's of Science degree in Speech-Pathology and am nationally board certified.  I received a national fellowship in  2001 to attend the University of St. Thomas and am in the process of finishing my oral examinations in the area of Special Education: Learning Disabilities and hope to complete a Master's of Education program this Spring.

Dowling is a wonderful school where children of all abilities are accepted as being unique and capable of learning.  I work with an incredible collaborative team of Kindergarten, Third, and Fourth Grade Teachers while providing instruction to students of all ability levels in the areas of communication, reading, writing, and math.  Students work hard and have fun learning.  I am easiest to reach by email at jane.brandt@mpls.k12.mn.us.

On a personal note, I am a product of the Minneapolis Public Schools and attended Kenny Elementary and Anthony Middle School.  In addition to choosing Dowling as my place of employment, I also chose it for my own children to attend elementary school.  My sons are now in college but some of my happiest memories are the years that they attended Dowling, Sullivan, Anwatin, and South High Schools.  I live in the Nokomis neighborhood.
