lHi everyone!

My name is Maureen Thielen, and this will be my second year as the Occupational Therapist at Wildwood Elementary. I am excited and looking forward to another year with the Mahtomedi Public School community! I love working with young students, helping to provide them with the tools and skills they need to be successful!

A little bit about me: I was born and raised in Dubuque, Iowa. I grew up with two parents as educators, so the importance of education was instilled in me at a very young age. I completed my undergraduate work at the University of Northern Iowa and completed my graduate school work at St. Catherine University in St. Paul. 

During my free time, I enjoy being with my husband, family, and friends. I also enjoy sitting by a pool and staying active.

I look forward to working with you and your children!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
Phone: 651-407-2109

Have a great year!

Our School
At Wildwood Elementary School, we honor the whole child and teach future-ready skills of inspiring curiosity, embracing change, and turning ideas into action. Our talented teachers and staff members work with students in small class sizes and nurture a culture of excellence that has become the expectation and norm. Our students learn social-emotional skills alongside academic core areas in order to gain the foundation for academic success. In addition, they have the opportunity to engage in learning with specialists in gym, art, media, music, and STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) classes. Our elementary school is surrounded by green space and our students enjoy recess at our natural playground and attend classes in our outdoor classroom. We have an engaged and supportive parent community who volunteers and supports the school with academic opportunities and tools. Our District is a leader in engineering and science and we value academic areas that will spark curiosity, fuel creativity, and instill a lifelong passion for innovation in our students.
