Hello, awesome fifth graders and parents! My name is Deeqa Hussein. I go by Ms. Hussein or Ms. Deeqa. I am your teacher this year! My journey at Spero Academy started last year as a paraprofessional, and this year will be my first year teaching. I am excited to work with and get to know each and every one of you!
I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor of Arts. in Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences and leadership minor. I later went on to pursue my Special Education Autism teaching license and Master’s in Special Education at the University of St. Thomas.
My nationality is of Somali origin. I was born in Saudi Arabia and grew up in Canada. I lived in Kenya for a few years before moving to Minnesota. I currently reside in South Minneapolis.
In my free time, I enjoy traveling, exploring new coffee shops in the Twin Cities area, and spending quality time with family and friends.
Fun fact about me is that I speak four languages. These languages are English, Somali, Arabic, and Swahili.
I look forward to all the learning, growth, and fun this school year!
