1st Grade: Mrs. Jarocki

Welcome to the First Grade Classroom!

My name is Mrs. Jennifer Jarocki. I have taught at FLS for seven years. I love teaching in the primary grades and seeing the students love being at school every day. I get very excited watching the students learn to read and write. Jesus Christ is our focus in our everyday activities, learning how important His life and death are to our lives and our education.  I received my Elementary Education degree from University of Wisconsin-River Falls, with a minor in Reading. I live with my husband, our two children and our dog. During my downtime, I love to sit with a good book by the lake.

“I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.” Isaiah 48:17
