Hello Waite Park Wildcats!  My name is Sally Engen and I am your Instructional Specialist.  I am here to support teaching and learning for the Waite Park community.  I have worked in Minneapolis Public Schools for the past 8 years and absolutely love MPS.  As a special education teacher and elementary education teacher for the past 12 years I was fortunate to work in many diverse and exciting settings.  I first started teaching in Sweden and New Zealand before serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Uzbekistan.  After my tenure in Uzbekistan, I was a recipient of a Peace Corps Fellowship that took my teaching and learning to the Hopi Indian Reservation in Northeast Arizona, where I also earned my Master's degree in Education in 2004.  My undergraduate degree is in Elementary Education from the University of Minnesota-Duluth.  I am a born and bred true Minnesota girl and grew up in Fridley.   I am proud to be a homeowner and live in Northeast Minneapolis with my husband Davin, son Jacob,  and wonderful dog, Missy.  I am excited to be a Wildcat and am looking forward to a great school year.
