Hello and Welcome to First Grade!
My name is Jen Tacheny Landowski and I am very, very excited to begin the new school year as a partner in your child’s education. I am looking forward to a fun-filled year of growing and learning.
I grew up in the East Side of St. Paul and White Bear Lake, where I graduated from high school. I attended the University of St. Thomas and earned B.A.'s in history and elementary education in 2005. I also earned my Masters in Teaching from St. Thomas in 2008. In addition to teaching for the past 3 years here at Hoover, I taught previously at inner-city schools in St. Paul and Minneapolis, as well as at an international studies school in Apple Valley. This will be my 5th year in a row teaching a first grade class. Hoover has definitely been the best fit for me, and I am thrilled to be back here for another successful year. I enjoy traveling, reading, playing tennis, and spending time with my husband Ben and our brand new baby boy, Jaydan, at our home in Roseville.
