Mrs. Jen Bove
This will be my fifteenth year teaching at Irene King School. I graduated from Eastern Illinois University and received my master’s degree in education and English as a Second Language endorsement from National Louis University. My favorite hobbies are reading, yoga, running and cooking.
I also know that you may be feeling anxious or excited about your child starting kindergarten full day! I have been in the same boat twice! When both my boys started kindergarten I was nervous. So some things that I have tried to help ease my nerves are sharing positive stories about school (talk about your experience in kindergarten), let my child know how excited I am for all the things they will learn and accomplish, and most importantly… don’t let them see you cry! I know that’s easier said than done. When you come to drop off your child be happy for them and show them a big smile. This will let them know that everything will be okay. You are their biggest cheerleader!
Please feel free to contact me with a note, phone call or email. Any concern you have is a concern of mine and by supporting each other we can help your child have a successful year in kindergarten. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
