Meet Mrs. Kluntz
 
          My name is Jennifer Kluntz. I am going on my 12th year of teaching. I graduated from MSU, Mankato in 2004 with my Elementary Education degree and pre-primary emphasis. I taught Kindergarten at Hoover Elementary and then transferred to Rosa Parks Elementary in 2010 when the school opened. I have really enjoyed being part of the new school, the great staff and community. I graduated in 2009 with my Master's degree in education.  In the past year I have advanced my teaching by taking more online classes and now have 45 credits beyond my Masters. I am a life long learner!

         My husband and I have 3 children and enjoy spending time with our family.  I also enjoy reading, walking, shopping, traveling, and visiting with friends.  We have a boat and love spending time on the lake in the summer!  I have dreamt about being a teacher since I was a child.  I used to play school with my siblings and couldn't wait to have my own classroom someday! 

        This will by my second year teaching first grade.  Last year I came to first grade from teaching 9 years of Kindergarten. I loved Kindergarten but was ready for a new journey and a little more independence.  First grade is fantastic! Watch how much your child matures and blossoms with their reading, writing, spelling, and math skills! It is amazing to me how much they learn in first grade!  I am excited to get to know your child this school year! Open communication is very important to me, so feel free to contact me with any questions.
