Hello! My name is David Nolde. I have taught in Minneapolis for more than twenty years. I have teaching experience in grades 3-6. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree from Winona State University and my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from St. Thomas University.

I believe all students can learn if they have support from both school and home. It is a partnership that is and should be a shared responsibility.  Students need positive interactions, self worth, and motivational strategies to assist them in their  learning.  Developing social skills is important in group work settings to succeed in our society.
