Welcome to our Classroom Website
My name is Jodene Vanjoske. I am formerly from the Chicago area, but have lived with my family in Brooklyn Park for the past 40 years. I have three sons who all graduated from Champlin Park High School- two of my sons also teach in the A-H District. My sons are married and I have two grandson,s two granddaughters, and two Yorkies-Wrigley is named after Chicago's Wrigley Field and my favorite Cubs and Harley is has his name because I ride a Harley Sporster. I have been teaching about 25+ years now, but started as a volunteer and then a paraprofessional in my boys' schools! I attended the University of Illinois, have a degree in Psychology from the University of Minnesota, and my teaching degree is from the University of St. Thomas. I earned my Master's Degree from the University of St. Mary's in '08. I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren, gardening, travel- (I take off to Florida frequently as my extended family lives there), playing and watching sports- (you'll find me at many Gopher Hockey games).
Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
