Woodbury Schools

South Washington County Schools (833), which serves Woodbury, is providing leadership in a national program to advance the technical skils of high school students. Project Lead The Way (PLTW), a national provider of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) curriculum and professional development, announced that East Ridge High School in Woodbury has been selected to pilot a new PLTW course in the 2013-14 school year.  

The course, Computer Science and Software Engineering, addresses an ever-growing need for students across all career paths to explore the new questions and tools opened up by massive data collection and processing. The course also exposes students to the high-demand career paths within Computer Science and Information Technology.  The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that 50% of the 1.4 million job openings in STEM through 2018 will be for computer specialists (PCAST Report to The President: Engage to Excel, 2012.)  

Donald Winston, instructor at East Ridge High School, is among approximately 50 teachers nationwide participating in the pilot program. These 50 teachers will help construct the professional development for the teachers who wish to implement the Computer Science and Software Engineering course when it becomes available in the 2014-15 school year. 

Both East Ridge and Woodbury High Schools offer a number of other PLTW courses to high school students in science and technology.

John and Becky are real estate agents with backgrounds and work experiences that set us apart from our competition. We are both educated with post graduate degrees and have worked in upper bracket professional management positions in both business and educational settings prior to real estate. We know how to work with all social and economic clientele - whether it's a first time buyer, or a multi-million dollar client. We put the emphasis on ‘EXECUTIVE LEVEL' service regardless of the size of the transaction.

Our mission statement embodies putting the client first. We recognize the importance of listening to, and fully understanding our clients' needs and concerns. Each of us brings a unique set of marketable skills with none more important than integrity and honesty. We give our word that there will never be a transaction we are involved with that is not handled with professionalism, honesty, and integrity. Additionally, we pride ourselves on our communication skills and the ability to market and negotiate our client's properties with superior results. In fact, our efforts were recently recognized with an award for our client marketing. This is a prestigious award only a few agents in the Twin Cities receive from the National Association of Realtors and Realtor.com.
