Ms. Jennifer Bishop


My name is Jennifer Bishop.  I have taught at Folwell since 2015.  Before coming to Minneapolis Public Schools, I taught for many years in Roseville and Saint Paul. I have taught English as a Second Language to preschoolers, elementary, middle school, and adult students. I have also taught French to students of many different ages.

I hold a BA in French and Russian language and literature from Saint Olaf College.  I earned my teaching licensure and am working towards my Master's in Education at Hamline University.  I also hold a certificate in teaching French as a Foreign Language from a university in Montpellier, France.

At Folwell School I teach English as a Second Language in the Sixth Grade. I co-teach with Ms. Hannah Walker, our Minnesota Studies teacher.  My focus is on helping all our students improve their written and spoken English and develop their academic vocabulary.  I work with English Language Learners and others within the class to support their reading, language, and academic development.  Small groups of English Language Learners work with me during Enrichment Hour on language development as well.

Please feel free to contact me by email: if you would like any more information!
