Degrees and Certifications:
Hello. My name is Joel Jenson and am now on my third year in Deering, and am teaching Pre-K/Kindergarten this year. My wife Deidre Jenson is the principal here and we have really enjoyed our time in Deering.
We have three grown children that are all in college with 2 of them graduating this spring. We have lived all over the state of Alaska for the past 14 years. I grew up in Minnesota and love travel and adventure. This summer Deidre and I traveled to Washington,Oregon, and Idaho. After a crazy summer of travel, it is good to be back and sleeping in my own bed.
This fall we have already picked lots of blueberries. My students are doing a great job and have a great attitude about learning. I look forward to an awesome year working with the students, teachers and support staff.
