Mark Wallace

3rd/4th/5th Grade Classroom Teacher from Edina, MN

I grew up in Burnsville, MN, and attended the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities for both my undergraduate and Masters work. I have worked for Edina Public Schools since 1999. I currently teach in the Continuous Progress Program at Highlands Elementary in a 3rd-5th grade multi-age classroom. I am passionate about learning, creativity, and helping students discover when they are in their element. I also coordinate the Workflow Institute, a branch of Edina Schools whose mission is to unleash the full potential of learners - students, staff and families. I have been married to my beautiful wife, Nikki, since 2005. She is a wonderful wife and mother, as well as a talented graphic designer and musician. I have 3 wonderful children who bring me joy every day.
