Mrs. Jenny Humburg
Welcome to kindergarten! My name is Jenny Humburg and I am THRILLED to be your child’s kindergarten teacher! There is an exciting year awaiting, designed to promote and enhance your child's growth and development. This very important year promises to be one filled with discovery and joy as your child works and plays in an environment that is warm, safe and challenging. The structure of daily activities is carefully planned to encourage independence, self confidence and group cooperation through large group, small group and one-on-one participation in a variety of hands-on, interactive experiences. The activities will incorporate instruction and skill reinforcement in reading readiness, mathematics, writing, science, social studies, health, fine motor skills, social/emotional skills and language development.
I am looking forward to getting to know all about you and your family, but first I would like to tell you a few things about myself! I was born in Des Moines, Iowa and raised in Lawrence, Kansas. I am the oldest of FOUR! I have a younger brother, Roger, and two younger sisters, Sarah and Katie. When I graduated from high school, I moved to Manhattan to attend Kansas State University…Go WILDCATS!
After graduating from KSU, I moved to Ft. Worth, TX to begin my teaching career. I taught a mulit-age class for three years. After three years, I decided to move “back home!” I love Lawrence and knew I couldn’t stay away forever. I have been teaching in Lawrence for over 20 years! Additionally, I received my master’s degree in Education from Baker University.
My husband, Andy, is a Project/Program Manager for T-Mobile. We have one son, Carsten. He is 13 and he will be an eighth grader at West Middle School. He is so much fun! He loves kayaking, swimming, video games and reading! We also have two cats, Meeka and Draco!
I am looking forward to this new journey together and hope that it is filled with wonder and discovery!
