Ms. Josephine Jensen

Hello, my name is JoLynn Jensen.  I began my teaching career as a special educator.  Presently, as a second grade teacher it is my pleasure to help children grow as responsible life-long learners and to unwrap their learning potential.  Since 1998, I have been a proud member of the Summit Environmental School community.  Our second grade team works collaboratively to meet our mission: to provide our students with a solid educational foundation in the core academic areas with an environmental focus integrated throughout the curriculum.

I am originally from Madison, but have called La Crosse home since coming here in 1986.  I was drawn to the area’s natural beauty.  When I am not teaching, I can be found spending time with my family or friends.  I like being outdoors, looking for birds and wildlife while exploring nature.  I enjoy movies, cooking, reading, biking, boating on the Mississippi River, and hiking the bluffs.

Educational Background

Masters of Education Professional Development – UW-La Crosse

Bachelors of Science in Special Education (Cognitive Disabilities & Emotional Disturbances) – UW-Madison

“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.”  ~ John Dewey

You can reach me directly by phone each morning (7:35-8:00 a.m.) or after school (2:45-4:00 p.m.). I am always available for a message via email.
