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 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 to 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 in order to create 21st century learners.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our dog, Scout. As you may learn from your child, I love penguins. My family even adopted a penguin in my name. Her name is Mistletoe. I am excited to share information and photos about my very own penguin throughout the year.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me. I believe that together we can work to help your child have a successful 4th grade year.
