Hi, my name is Mrs. Bakken. I am the Media Specialist. In the “old days,” this was the library. Now we work on Media Literacy, Theater, and Technology skills. I work with 900 students per week so I stay quite busy. It is amazing to see students grow up right before my eyes. I hope that you are using your time off of school to read and learn.
I have been teaching at Challenger Elementary School for the past 18 years. Before I was here, I did my student teaching in England. While I was there, I toured around Europe. I love traveling! I have also been to numerous states here in the U.S., Australia, and Japan.
Once I was done Student Teaching in England, I started at Challenger Elementary School, and I attained my Masters in Information Media at St. Cloud State University, and I also have my K-12 Principal’s License as I took Education Leadership classes from Minnesota State University Moorhead, which is also where I worked on my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education.
Besides teaching and traveling, I love spending time with my husband and daughters. We have lots of fun together, and we take many pictures so that I can put them in our scrapbooks. Being a Media Specialist, I also love to read. Some of my favorite authors are J.K. Rowling, Carolyn Keene, and James Patterson.
I look forward to seeing you!
P.S. If you have any questions regarding the Media Center, please contact me.
