English Language Learners

Patti Kuenzie

Hello!!  Welcome to River Falls!! I am one of the K-12 English Language Learner (ELL) teachers for the School District of River Falls.  I attended Hamline University in St. Paul, MN and received my K-12 ESL licensure in January 2003.  I am currently working on my Master’s Degree in ELL and recently added an Elementary Ed. licensure. Previously, I attended UW-Madison, have a B.A. in Social Work and was a social worker for several years prior to teaching.

I love working with kids and their families and especially enjoy learning about new cultures and languages!!
