    Field Experience

      30 Years

    Hello, my name is Jill and I’m from Iowa. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Education with a concentration in Reading. I’ve been a licensed teacher for 30 years in Minnesota, and then Iowa. I have 30 years experience teaching Christian preschool in a classroom, teaching different age levels while substituting in Christian schools, and tutoring my own children. I’ve also taught K-6th grade Sunday school, church midweek, and VBS classes for 30 years. I am currently teaching English as a second language to children online through VIPKID. I have been teaching with them for almost 2 years. I also currently serve on the board for Joyful Journeys preschool and Child care. My husband and I have raised 4 awesome kids of our own who have grown to be a physician assistant, a dentist studying to be an oral surgeon, a married daughter in grad school studying to be a doctor of physical therapy, and another still in college. I am a fun, friendly, patient, high energy teacher and I will continually take more classes to further my knowledge for teaching. I love to get to know my students to help with their skills and I would love to teach classes online with more children!

    I have always known that Jesus is my Savior. I was raised in a Christian home, attending any and all church activities and services. I have always been a member of LCMS. I earned my college degree intending to teach children and share my faith and love for God whenever possible. I have worked most of my life teaching in Christian schools and/or Christian preschools. The last 2 years, I have been enjoying teaching English as a second language to children online. I’ve absolutely loved it, but I miss telling children about Jesus. I have learned that I need to keep Him first in my life to find real joy while here, until I can live eternally with Him.
