Middle School Math and Science:
Mrs. Mary Jo Gilbert

651-842-6063, mjgilbert@presentationofmary.org
Experience: 36 years (17 at Presentation)
Education: B.S. in Elementary Education from the University of Minnesota
Philosophy: I value the teaching I am able to do at Presentation School, as it allows me to share the Catholic faith and the teachings of the Catholic Church with my students. I want to foster critical thinking skills in all my students, so I focus on giving students questions, not answers, so students learn through self-discovery. Students are actively involved and engaged as they search for answers. Students need to think through the question asked and work out a response based on logic and reason.
Hobbies: gardening, reading, travel
