Mrs. Magistad: 

I am Pamela Magistad (pronounced--Magi like magazine and st + add), and this is my first year at Lester Prairie Schools.

I grew up in Minnesota and earned my BA in literature at Hamline University.  I began my teaching career in Las Vegas, NV, teaching sixth grade English (literature, writing, and grammar).  From there, I lived in France and was a co-owner of a restaurant in Avignon, France.  While living and working in France with limited French language skills, I became interested in teaching English as a second language and returned home to study English as a Second Language (ESL) at Hamline.  I completed my ESL licensure coursework and earned my MAT, also from Hamline.  I am licensed for K12 ESL in the state of Minnesota.

I live with my husband and two dogs in Chanhassen, MN.

I have also worked as a florist, a graphic designer, and a wedding photographer.  I have designed two books for a friend who is an artist (painter).

I enjoy reading fiction and nonfiction, playing Sudoku, and researching ancestry.  In the last couple years, I have become very interested in gardening and get a little better at it each year.
