Welcome to 1st grade with Mrs. Mannes

Hello!  I have been teaching in Minneapolis Public Schools for over 25 years. I have experience teaching kindergarten, first grade, third grade, and Title 1 reading and math.  While in Minneapolis, I was also a reading coach for a few years.

I have my master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction, a k-12 reading license, a k-6 remedial reading license and also have a coaching license. I have completed classes on talent development to help increase achievement of students who are advanced learners.  I live in Eden Prairie with my husband, Todd, and our two children, Cara (20 years old)  and Andrew (15 years old).  We all love sports, boating, traveling, and spending time together as a family.

If you need to reach me, please email me at crystal.mannes@mpls.k12.mn.us or leave a message with the school secretary 668-5040.  I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Mrs. Mannes
