Ms. Zensen's Class
My goal is for every student to have fun learning, be accountable and show integrity! Students will become empowered through education and realize their potential as they recognize the influence and value of building knowledge from their creative imagination. I am committed to making learning fun, insightful, and getting to know each student as he/she begins to take responsibility for their success. I value the team approach by partnering with parents and colleagues to support each child through this process.
Dreams do come true and I am living mine! This is my twelth year teaching third-grade at Stellar Elementary. I am thrilled to be on a fantastic team of generous, hardworking, professional educators who share one goal - student achievement. As a cohesive staff, we work together, not only within our grade level, but vertically to meet the needs of all students through collaboration; THE key to the success of all children. I am fortunate to be part of such a “Stellar” staff. We are the village!
On a personal note, I am a Summa Cum Laude graduate of Metropolitan State University. Two very handsome young men call me Mom. When I’m not at work I’m either golfing or fly-fishing. I purchased a used camper trailer last summer and love spending time in on a river in the mountains. I also enjoy shooting my long-bow (at targets, no animals), running, hiking, country-western dancing, skiing, socializing and entertaining. I was born in Pennsylvania and moved more than a half-dozen times within my first seven years of life. Half way through 2nd grade, my residence became Wheaton, Illinois, where my mom still resides in the house I grew up in. I have four sisters and many adorable nieces and nephews. I travel to Wheaton several times a year to visit my mom. I’ve moved throughout the United States, from the east coast to the west coast. Colorado has been my home since 1983 and I can’t imagine living anywhere else!
I am excited to spend my days with your child. Please save my number in your phone and if ever you have a question, comment, or suggestion, please call me first!
