Ms. Ashley Jensen
Welcome to fourth and fifth grade! We are thrilled to be working with you and your child this year. Ms. Jensen has been teaching at John A. Johnson since 2019. She earned her Bachelor's Degree from the University of Iowa (Go Hawkeyes!) in 2015, and she earned her Master's in teaching from the University of St. Thomas in 2019. Prior to becoming a classroom teacher, she was a literacy interventionist and English language teacher.
When Ms. Jensen is not at school, you can find her outside running, hiking, gardening, rock climbing or spending time with family and friends. She also loves exploring the dog parks with her parnter, Will, and their puppy, Kenai.
Ms. Jensen grew up in Des Moines, Iowa. After living in La Coruña, Spain (hablo español) for one year, she made the move to Saint Paul. She travels to Iowa often to visit her family.
Ms. Jensen loves the curiosity, confidence, and energy that fourth and fifth graders bring to the classroom. JAJ is such an exciting place to be because of all the fun learning projects we do, as well as the extracurricular activities. She is looking forward to partnering with you as your child grows.
