Meet our Teachers! This week, we are so happy to introduce you to 1st Grade Teacher, Mrs. Jolynda Elsenheimer.

Mrs. Elsenheimer has been teaching for 35 years.  She has taught for many years at first, second and third grade as an elementary classroom teacher. Mrs. Elsenheimer has also been a vocal music teacher for grades K-12.

Choosing education as a profession:  “I knew I wanted to be a teacher when I was in first grade. The desire to teach never left. I would play school at home often. My stuffed animals and my dog were my students, and they sat near a big chalkboard ready to learn. Yes, they were very well behaved!”

Favorite Classroom Lesson:  “I don’t really have a favorite lesson, but I enjoy the uniqueness of each subject area, and how I can relate it to real life experiences. As a teacher, my favorite moment is when a student has that ‘Got It!’ look on their face! That look is always priceless. You can feel the excitement with each success. Each year I look forward to these special moments.”

Why DeSales:  “I absolutely love being a teacher at DeSales! It is a wonderful school and a community filled with loving, supportive families. Every child is so different! It is so special to be able to share our faith and God’s love for us, then weave it in the teaching moments throughout the day. It is extra special to be here at DeSales, as both of my children attended here a few years back.”

Favorite movie: “Forrest Gump”

Favorite quote(s): “I actually have 2 quotes that I think about often.”

“There is no such thing as failure. You either succeed or learn. – Kevin Kruse

“Less is more.” – Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
