ANTONIA DEMPSEY, Academic Language & ESL Teacher

Hello! My name is Antonia Dempsey, and this is my 8th year teaching at Roosevelt High School!  Over the years, I have co-taught many subjects, including World History, U.S. Government, Economics, English 9 and English 10.  I have also taught ESL 1B, ESL 3B, and ALD 9.  This year, I am co-teaching Integrated English 9 with Rebecca Oberg and Laurel Kratowicz. 

I earned my undergraduate degree in American Racial and Multicultural Studies from St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN, and received my ESL and Spanish teaching license, as well as my Masters of Education in Second Languages and Cultures from the University of Minnesota. 

My goal is to support students to develop their academic language skills so that they can think critically and communicate their ideas about what they read, hear and learn.   

In my free time, I enjoy traveling, biking, reading, running, "field trips" with my niece and nephews, and discovering new places in Minneapolis. 

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns:
