Welcome to Third Grade in Room 34!
Greetings to you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. My name is JoAnn Renken and I am happy to be in the classroom with your children. This is my 23rd year as a Lutheran school teacher, and my 11th year at St. Paul's.
I graduated from Concordia, Irvine with a Bachelors degree in Liberal Studies and a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction, specializing in Reading Education. I am also a certificated Reading Specialist through the State of California. I earned my Colloquy through the Lutheran Church.
When I am not at school I love to read, garden, play with our 6 grandchildren, work on genealogy, and work out. My husband and I work out together and cook together. His pancakes are yummy! We also love to travel. Our grandchildren are our pride and joy. I have pictures if you have time.....:)
I look forward to a wonderful year of learning and growing with the students in room 34. Please stop by often and say hello!
Have a great day knowing you are loved by the Lord,
