Welcome to Science!

Mrs. Antonson

I graduated from the University of Minnesota, Duluth with a degree in Teaching Life Science.

Why I choose to work at Aspen Academy: I am excited to begin my 5th year teaching Science at Aspen.  The staff and students are what bring me back each year and I cannot wait to see the learning and collaboration that will take place. 

Something new I hope to incorporate in my teaching this year is:  Using the text as evidence when we read science articles.

Hobbies/interests:  In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, exploring new restaurants, jogging, paddle boarding, and  reading.

Favorite author/historical figure: Mary Higgins Clark and J.K. Rowling are two of my favorites.  I love the suspense in their novels!

Personal motto/inspirational quote:  "Shoot for the moon.  Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars."
