Mrs. Helgason

  • Jenny Helgason  Hey there! 


    My name is Jenny Helgason and I am thrilled to be a part of the Washington Technology Magnet School team!  This is my 18th year in the Saint Paul Schools and my tenth year working as a Reading teacher at Washington. 


    In my free time I enjoy spending time with family, friends, traveling and, of course, reading! My favorite types of books to read are memoirs. I love funny Tik Toks. Please share them with me, especially if they include dogs! 


    Something that students find hard to believe about me is that I grew up in Saint Paul and graduated from Central High School. My post-high school education includes a BA in Elementary Education, an MA in Curriculum and Instruction, and a Reading license, all from the University of Saint Thomas. I have taught grades K- college.


    I am grateful and humbled that I get to serve Washington students. I am continually amazed not by what I teach students, but by what they teach me. I wish I could take each of you out for a cup of coffee and learn your story. When you graduate, please take me up on this offer!

    The best ways to contact me are to email me at: or text/leave voicemail/call (612) 548 - 4161
