Jensyn: Reading, Math & Elementary Ed
I recently received my Masters degree in special populations through Augustana College. I am currently in my 5th year of teaching. My teaching experience encompasses three years as a special education teacher and two years as a classroom interventionist. I have taught students ranging from 5th to 7th grade, as well as a nanny for kids ages from 5 to 15.
As an interventionist, I work with students who are not achieving at grade level for either math or reading. In addition, I have experience coaching 8th grade girls and 5-8th grade boys basketball. I love getting to know my students and their interests. I believe in building relationships and finding positive connections. Currently, my 5th graders are making lists of their favorite Anime to watch.
I love to spend time outdoors: hiking, kayaking, swimming, boating and playing frisbee with my dog. In addition, I have a passion for playing sports, as well as watching movies with my family.
My husband and I just got married this past summer. We are working hard to save up for a house, in hopes to have a better yard for our crazy dog, Azula.
