My name is Mr. Block and I will be teaching 5th grade at Lake Harriet Upper Campus while Mrs. Peterson is on her leave. I am incredibly excited to be filling in. A little bit about me: I graduated in May of 2017 from the University of Minnesota with my Master’s of Education. I spent the 2016 - 2017 school year teaching first grade at Kenny Community School in south Minneapolis for my graduate studies. While attending the U of M I have been involved with Lake Harriet Community School as an employee of Minneapolis Kids at lower campus. I live in the community, about seven blocks from upper campus. A few of my favorite things: long walks on the beach, backgammon, and getting caught in the rain.
Education is not the filling of a bucket, but the lighting of a fire.
