Mrs. Angie Wells—Fourth Grade Teacher
Hello! My name is Angie Wells, and I am so excited to join the St. Joseph community as the fourth grade teacher! I just got married in June and moved to Farmington after with my husband, John. I graduated from The College of Saint Benedict in 2016 with a major in Elementary Education and a minor in Hispanic Studies. Growing up, I attended Epiphany Catholic School in Coon Rapids. For the past 3 years, I have been teaching first grade at Saint Stephen’s in Anoka. I cannot wait to share my passion for Catholic schools and education with you as I begin my journey at St. Joseph School!
Mrs. Kari Krook—Sixth Grade Teacher/Middle School Math Teacher
Greetings! My name is Kari Krook and after growing up in northwest Iowa, I pursued a Bachelor of Arts degree in marketing from the University of Northern Iowa. For a few years I worked in business, but soon recognized my calling and pursued a K-6 with middle school math teaching certification at the College of St. Catherine. Most recently, I completed a Master of Arts in Teaching and Learning at St. Mary’s University. My experience includes different classroom roles in grades K-8. I’ve taught middle school math in both Catholic schools and public schools in Minnesota. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family as well as running and being active outdoors. I am excited to join the staff at St. Joseph School and look forward to working with your children!
