Welcome to Ms. Vue and Ms. Jensen's 4th Grade Class!
I'm excited to spend this school year with you and your child. What I value most about teaching is building strong reltaionships with my students and their families because I believe that when we work as a team, the students make the most progress.
I recieved my BA in Elementary Education from York College in York, Nebraska. I am currently in the process of getting my Masters in Differentiated Intructions at Concordia so that I can better reach all the various academic levels of my students. When I am not teaching, thinking about teaching, preparing lessons, organizing my classroom or writing research papers, I like to travel and watch movies (comedy and thrillers are my favorite!). I have been to Thailand (twice), Australia (twice), Fiji, and 10+ states. I'd like to go somewhere in Europe next.
This year, I will have a resident teacher, Ms. Jensen, working with me. She is in the process of getting her teaching license and she will be doing all of her student teaching in my class. I will still be in the classroom throughout the year.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please call me or Ms. Jensen anytime during school hours.
My name is Ashley Jensen, and I will be a part of your child’s 4th grade class. I am a St. Paul Public Schools resident teacher working toward my Master’s Degree at the University of St. Thomas. I will be present in the classroom Tuesdays-Fridays. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish (hablo español) and Sociology from the University of Iowa. I am excited to learn alongside our class this year. Some of my hobbies include reading, running, and traveling. Please reach out with any questions, concerns, or things you’d like to share. I look forward to meeting you and working together to help your child grow!
