Hello! my name is Stacy Bangs (formerly Severson), and I teach English learners (ELs) in grades K-2. I also work with K-5 Dual Eligible students - students who qualify for both EL and Special Ed. services.

I have been teaching in MPS since 2000, for ten years at Northrop, and I've been at Dowling since 2015. Prior to teaching English learners, I taught Reading, Environmental Education, Advanced Learners, Future Problem Solvers.

A little about me

I am the 3rd of four generations to have graduated from Minneapolis Public Schools. My grandmother was an English learner who began Kindergarten speaking only Swedish (which I also speak, along with French, Spanish, Russian, German, and now learning Italian). One of my favorite stories I tell my students is that when I was young, my poor immigrant family never went to movies or restaurants.  We would go to the woods and fish all day, then brought the extra panfish to the garbage dump to watch the black bears come in and eat dinner.  The bears were my movie, and the dump was my theater. I have a son who lives in New York (far from the woods).

I have many hobbies, but my favorites are photography, traveling, cooking, and any combination of these three.
