Ms. Jenny

3s Teacher and ECFE

Hello! My name is Jenny Mansker and I am the new preschool teacher for the all day 3s class!

My family moved to Battle Lake in August 2015 and we love being a part of this community! I enjoy reading, baking, listening to music and podcasts, and running. My husband, Derek, is the pastor at Battle Lake Alliance Church and is a member of the Battle Lake Rescue Squad. We have four children. Noah (14), Cayden (11), Josiah (8), and Claire (6) are all students at Battle Lake Schools. During our first two years in Battle Lake, I attended Battle Lake ECFE with my daughter and it was instrumental in getting us familiar with the school and community. As our children have grown, we have enjoyed cheering them on in their different activities and being a part of school events whenever possible. As a family we enjoy fishing, camping, exploring State Parks, and Green Bay Packer football! We also have a cat named Minnie and a turtle named Squirt.

I have always wanted to be a teacher! I earned my degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood from Crown College in 2004. I stepped away from teaching so that I could be home full time with our children. During that time I was also able to get involved in church and community volunteer opportunities. I have been involved with MOPS, 4H, community band, classroom volunteering, and children’s Sunday school. I’m currently the Cubbies Director in our church Awana program. I lead the preschool age group with the help of two other leaders. A typical evening includes a large group lesson, music, small group time, a puppet show, and game time. Every Wednesday night is an adventure!

In Fall 2017 I began subbing as a para at Battle Lake School. In that position I was able to spend a lot of time in elementary classrooms. I was even able to sub in both the 3s and 4s classrooms. In March 2018 I began full time as a para and worked in both elementary and high school classes. I loved working with students again and being back in the public school setting.

I’m excited to be back in the classroom this year as a preschool teacher! I look forward to meeting you and your child as we start this preschool adventure!
