Welcome! I am your child’s fourth grade teacher, Mrs. Lents. This is my fifth year working in Bloomingdale sd13. I have worked at both DuJardin and Erickson Elementary as a paraprofessional. This is my third year working as a classroom teacher at DuJardin. I am excited to continue to to be a part of the DuJardin community this year.
I firmly believe that students should not only learn the content material for fourth grade, but develop a love of learning. I continue to learn something new every day. My classroom is very fast paced and high energy. Students will be continuously working with the material and really experience the different concepts. We will also be incorporating technology into our day as much as possible.
As you may learn from your child, I love penguins. My family even adopted a penguin in my name. Her name is Mistletoe. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our dog, Scout.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns throughout the year please do not hesitate to contact me.
