Elementary School

Instructional Coach

My name is Paula Winter. I am excited to introduce myself. I am currently in my 30th year as an educator. I have taught in kindergarten, first and second grade. I have also served as a mentor for new teachers through the Graduate Induction Program and Winona State University.  I currently serve as an instructional coach at Pinewood.

In my role as an instructional coach I will be working with teachers and students in kindergarten through fifth grade in all curricular areas.  My passion is supporting reading and literacy! I love teaching at Pinewood and value being at a small school where I can greet almost every child by name.

I grew up in Rochester and attended the Rochester Public Schools from kindergarten through twelfth grade. I am also a wife and mother. My husband and I have four children ages 12 through 20. We enjoy swimming, fishing, boating, campfires, tandem bike riding and reading stories by the lake. Our family also loves sports. Volleyball, basketball, soccer, and running are currently our favorites.
