Mrs. Amy Carlson To All Instructors

Amy grew up in Illinois and became a Minnesota transplant after she married her husband. Her mother, who was an avid reader, instilled a love of reading in her at a very young age and even named her after two characters, Amy and Jo, from Louisa May Alcott’s classic Little Women.

Before moving to MN, she taught middle school social studies, language arts, and reading in a small private school in Chicago. Upon moving to MN, she taught 6 th grade social studies, language arts, and reading before transitioning into teaching AOM reading for struggling 6 th and 7 th graders in the Spring Lake Park school district. She “retired” from teaching to become a stay-at-home mom of four children. God eventually led her into homeschooling her children over the past 11 years, already graduating one from high school! 

Over the past several years she has taught a World Religions DSST class and an Environmental Science DSST class in her home and started tutoring elementary and middle school students.

In her spare time she likes to read, play her cello, and hang out with her family and friends. She really enjoyed her first year at WEST and is looking forward to many more. She feels blessed to be able to bring her love of reading back into a classroom setting where she can help create lifelong readers!
