Mrs. Jane Kirkus

Hello! I am happy to be co-teaching fifth grade this year! In our classroom, we are creating a culture of caring and mutual respect. This is my 10th year working in Valley View School District, and I enjoy being part of the team here at Indpendence. I have previous experience in Chicago Public Schools, LaGrange School District, and at a private tutoring center.  Please feel free to contact me at any time by phone: (630) 759-7282; email:; or through Class Dojo. As a parent, I understand that your concerns are important, and I will return your message as soon as I can.
