I love to travel

My name is Jen Smith. I have been teaching in Minneapolis since 2010. I LOVE teaching kindergarten and appreciate all of our school, community and family support. Teaching is a second career for me, having spent 14 years working in the Insurance business. I attended the University of St. Thomas Masters/Licensure program for my K-8 license with Communications, Art & Literature specialty.

Kindergarten Rocks

I hope to instill a love of learning into each student. I want children to be motivated, respectful, responsible, life-long learners. I believe school should be hands on, engaging and meaningful for kindergarten students. I hope each child who enters my classroom notices the wonder in the world around them. As partners in educating children, we can work together by making sure we listen, laugh, and love, as well as promote the best way to learn....reading to and with children.

Please feel free to stop in our room anytime, we would love to see you!

My dog Mia

I live in South Minneapolis near Minnehaha Falls. For fun I like to read, hang out at the cabin, go on walks with my dog, golf, play board & card games, travel, watch movies, attend Twins & Wild games and spend time with family & friends.
