Jill Nierengarten, Grade 2 Teacher

Third Grade-Team 230


Our classroom will focus on inquiry while developing wise and thoughtful readers and mathematicians. Successful students in room 230 will be curious and confident thinkers. We will be risk-takers by using our questioning skills, and sharing our knowledge through independence and cooperation.

I have been teaching elementary education since 1998 all within the inner city of Minneapolis. I began my teaching career at Lyndale Elementary, after which I joined the third grade team at Whittier International Baccalaureate in 2006. Finally, in 2014 I enthusiastically decided to join the third grade team at Jenny Lind. 

Before achieving my Elementary Education teaching license, and Masters of Education at the University of Minnesota, I had earned a Major in American Studies and a Minor in American Indian Studies. My second language is American Sign Language.
