Greta Hallberg is a Distance Learning and Digital Literacy AmeriCorps Emergency Member at Literacy Minnesota. Last year, she took a leave of absence from college to serve as a reading tutor, working with kindergarten through second grade students at Hiawatha Community School in Minneapolis through Minnesota Reading Corps. Next fall, she will return to St. Olaf College, where she studies English and French. The classes she has taken in these disciplines have encouraged her natural curiosity for and understanding of language. She believes that literacy, whether digital or language-based, has the transformative ability to inspire people to problem solve and become curious, informed, and empathetic learners. In her free time, Greta enjoys reading, listening to and playing music, watching movies, and spending time with friends and family.
