Hi, my name is Joan Blonski, I prefer to be called Joni though. I have been teaching in St. Paul since 2012. I received my teaching certification from the University of MN in 2011. Prior to receiving my teaching certificate, I was a practicing social worker. Teaching is not just a profession for me, it is my passion. I hope to help students build their own future, and find joy in learning. I am a Responsive Classroom trained teacher and I use this philosphy in my classroom.
In my time away from school I enjoy being with my family and being outside. I try to have a book with me at all times. Fun Fact: I reread the Harry Potter series every year.
