About Miss Molly

Miss Molly works as an AmeriCorps Academic Coach.  She helps students learn and understand the academic language through reading, writing, and vocabulary.  She grew up in Mankato, Minnesota and moved to Minneapolis after high school.  She studied graphic design at MCTC.

When not at school she likes spending time drawing, coloring, working on leather projects, and hanging out with her snakes.  Her vision for Anwatin is that the students feel valued, gain self-confidence, and be the best versions of themselves.  You can find her in room 421 or email her at molly.smedsrud@mpls.k12.mn.us. 

Her favorite quote: "Determine to live life with flair and laughter." - Maya Angelou
