Seward Physical Education

Transitioning to In-person Learning for K-5 students

As we transition to this new phase of learning I want to acknowledge all the different feelings you might be having. Please know all your Seward teachers and staff are here to support you.

This new phase will look different for specialists so we can make sure to keep you all as safe as possible.

In-person and Distance Learning Specialists

Students will have the same specialist class for 13-14 days in a row and then rotate to a new specialist. CH students will have PE, Art, Health, Media, and Music and the last rotation they will repeat one specialists. E1 & E2 students will have PE, Art, Health, Media, Music, and Science.

  • Enter google classroom/seesaw on your scheduled days/time.

  • Complete all assignments yourself by the due dates.

  • Ask a classmate/friend for help, and ask Ms. Huff if you still need help.

  • Text, call or email me if it is outside of your classes scheduled time and you need something.

  • Join google meet on time.

A little about me

My name is Jennifer Engelken, aka "Ms. Huff" (my maiden name). I'm very excited to be a Seward Shark, I've heard great things about the school and community. I started at Seward right before Thanksgiving 2019 after having my son, Wyatt.

I see all Children's House, E1, and E2 classes once a week except one classroom (currently Ellen's). Middle Schoolers have PE daily for a quarter as well.

Prior to Seward I taught Physical Education at Lyndale Elementary School for six years. I've also taught in Perham, MN and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

I have a B.A. in Psychology from Knox College, my B.S. in Physical Education Teacher Education from St. Cloud State University, and my M.A. in Education with a Culturally Responsive Teaching focus from St. Mary's University in MN.

I live with my husband Eric, our son, and our two cats Meelo & Mango. In my free time I love spending time with my family & friends, running, hiking, traveling, and playing kickball. I'm from Wisconsin and love the Packers, Badgers, and cheese! :-)

Here is a great resource for staying active at home
