Meet Adefarati Alabi, 2nd Grade Teacher

My name is Ade Alabi and I am the 2nd Grade teacher at Friendship Academy of the Arts. I am very excited to be a part of the FAA family and I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child and working together to help your child succeed. I am originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota. I received a BA in Finance from Morehouse College in 2001 and a teaching license from Augsburg College in 2010. Currently, I have completed my Masters degree in Elementary Education at Augsburg.

For the past few years, I have worked in the field of education in various capacities. I was an English Teacher in South Korea and I taught grades 3-5 in Minnesota. In my spare time, I read a lot of history, government, and science fiction books. My favorite activities are Tae Kwon Do, bicycling, technology, writing, travelling, and making short video documentaries

I am looking forward to getting to know you all. As parents and guardians, I understand that you are the most important teachers in your child’s life. I hope to provide a role where we are working together to help achieve your child’s goals. I am also looking forward to having a fun, productive and an exciting year Friendship Academy! If you have any questions, comments, or concerns feel free to contact me.
