My name is Kari and I am the English Language Arts teacher at the Mounds View eALC. I am enjoying my sixth year at the eALC! 

My office hours are every Tuesday morning from 7:30-8:30am, but feel free to email me anytime! I use this time to get in contact with parents to let them know of the great progress students are making in my class and if they're missing any assignments!

You can reach me by email at kari.eloranta@moundsviewschools.org or by phone at 651-621-6211. My room is Room 1, the first classroom on the left when you enter the school.

All students are all either enrolled in a Google Classroom or an APEX class. Students should log in to Classroom to find missing assignments, due dates, and work on their homework there.
