Welcome to Kindergarten!

Hello!  Welcome to Room 124.  My name is Jenny Bauer.  I have been teaching since 1992, all but one of those years have been in the Minneapolis Public Schools. I graduated with an Elementary Education degree from the University of St. Thomas and got a Master's Degree in Education from the College of St. Catherine. I live with my husband and two sons and a little dog name Allie.

I love teaching kindergarten! It is a noisy, busy place filled with lots of learning. Our learning can look very social and active, that's how we learn best! Kids learn best from people who love them; look how much they have already learned from you! We spend time on social emotional learning as well as the academics! 

We have 2 main beliefs in room 124:

1. We believe in helping, not hurting.

2. We believe in trying our best!
