Elisabeth Young-Isebrand Science Teacher

Hello!  My name is Lis Young-Isebrand and I currently teach biology at Wellstone International High School.  The 2014-2015 academic year will be my first full year at Wellstone.  Last year I taught biology and chemistry at Wellstone starting in February.  It is a privilege to teach at Wellstone for many reasons.  I especially appreciate how the international students teach me something new about the world everyday.  It is my hope that all of my students will gain a greater curiosity for science and the tools to investigate and use science to fulfill their life goals from the experiences in my classroom.

I graduated from Macalester College in 1989 with a major in biology.  In 2005 I received my Master’s degree in Environmental Education from the University of Minnesota.  I taught biology and chemistry at Washburn High School in Minneapolis from 1992-1999.  For 10 years between 1999-2014 I worked at the Monarch Lab at the University of Minnesota coordinating programs that connected university scientists with K-12 teachers.  From my work at the University of Minnesota's Monarch Lab I gained a passion for the process of science.
