Hello! My name is Jennifer Krutsinger and I am very excited to be the 2nd grade teacher at St. Luke’s the Evangelist! I have a Bachelors of Arts degree from the University of Northern Iowa in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I also have a minor in literacy education. Go Panthers! This will be my first year teaching in a school setting and I am very excited to spend the year teaching and learning from my students and the great faculty here at St. Luke’s!
Growing up in the Cedar Valley Catholic Schools in Waterloo, IA was a blessing filled with very fond memories that I hold dear to my heart. I believe integrating our faith into all subject areas is very important. It’s what makes Catholic schools unique. Second grade is a very important year for both the students and families. The children come to me every day and it is my responsibility to assist their parents in shaping and molding them as Jesus asks of us in the Bible.
St. Luke’s the Evangelist School is one in which the values of Faith, Hope, and Love are integrated in what is taught and modeled. I feel very lucky to be amongst staff members and parents who value this for children.
