Mrs. Jelen

Thank you for learning about me.

This is the start of my 22nd year as a teacher - 6 of these years I taught at Coventry Elementary School and then, moved here when Glacier Ridge opened.   This will be my 3rd year teaching 4th GRADE! I graduated from Northern Illinois University with a Bachelors in Elementary Education and a minor in Dance Education. In 2000, I earned a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Concordia University.  I further my education year after year by taking district courses and college courses because I am very committed and dedicated to my students and their learning. 

I have a wonderful family who always keeps me busy.  I am married to my awesome husband, Eric. He is a real estate broker for Coldwell Banker. Samantha is a senior, Sydney is fifteen and a sophomore, and my youngest, Sarina, is in 8th Grade. YES - 2 graduations this year! We have a fun pup named Jay who is an English Creme Golden Retriever. He will be two this December.  


I look forward to spending a terrific year with you and your children!
