Carolin Palmer

2nd Grade Teacher

Born and raised in Hamburg, Northern Germany, I spent my senior year of high school in Minnesota. I graduated from the University of Hamburg with a Bachelor’s Degree in English. After a “detour” through the business world, I decided to move back to Minnesota in 2008 to attend Hamline University in St. Paul, MN and earn a Master’s Degree in Elementary School Teaching and English Language Arts for Middle School.

I have many years of experience working with children of different ages – I did an internship at the preschool of the International School in Hamburg, taught an English language immersion class to elementary school children in Hamburg, and worked as a paraprofessional for several years in K6 schools in Minneapolis. Before moving to Portland in 2015, I worked as a third-grade classroom teacher for three years at the Twin Cities German Immersion School in Saint Paul, MN.

In my free time, I like to read, knit, be outdoors hiking and canoeing, go rock climbing, and most of all travel: This summer, I did a canoeing/camping trip in British Columbia, explored the South Oregon Coast, and visited family and friends in Minnesota.

I am very excited to start working with a new group of second graders this school year!
