My name is Katie Laubenstein and I am the Visual Arts teacher for both Hamline Elementary and Jie Ming Mandarin Immersion Academy. I graduated from North Dakota State University with my Bachelors of Science Degree in Art in 2014, continued my education there afterwards, and earned a Master's Degree in Education in 2015. I began teaching at Hamline and Jie Ming during January of 2016, so this is going to be my first full year as a teacher here. I am very excited for this school year and cannot wait to continue working with your students. Thank you for all of your support for the arts and all you do to support both schools.
