5th Grade Special Education

Welcome parents and students! My name is Brandi Grimm and I am one of the special education resource teachers in fifth grade for students with special needs. This is my fourth year at Lucy Laney, as well as my fourth year as a teacher. This is my second year working in the fifth grade. Working with fifth grade students has proven to be a challenging and rewarding experience for me. I enjoy building relationships with all of the students, while also growing as an educator in the general education classrooms.

This year will be my second year as a co-teacher in the English Language Arts/Social Studies classroom with Mr. Scott Charlesworth-Seiler and Mr. Sam Kitterman. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at Brandi.Grimm@mpls.k12.mn.us


A Few Things About Ms. Grimm

I grew up in a small town in Southeast Minnesota with my parents and my younger sister. When I am not teaching I enjoy reading, cooking, exercising, traveling, and coaching Special Olympics in St. Paul.

I attended Winona State University to earn my degree in Special Education, Learning Disabilities and Developmental Disabilities. This fall I am pursuing a masters in Special Education with an Autism License. I will be attending Concordia University in St. Paul. I am looking forward to expanding my knoweldge of special education!
