Hello. My name is Joel Jenson and am now on my second year in Deering, and am teaching Pre-K/1st grade this year. My wife Deidre Jenson is the principal here and we have three grown children. We have lived all over the state of Alaska for the past 13 years. I grew up in Minnesota and love travel and adventure. This summer Deidre and I traveled to Europe, Canada, and Minnesota, and Washington. 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 blue berries and made a staff trip up to Utika Gold Mine site. 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.
