Mrs. Israel
2022-23 Students Click HERE for your welcome letter!


Hello, I’m Jen Israel also known as Mrs. Izzy.  I am so excited to be a member of the second-grade team where I can share my passion for learning with your child and the children of Mahtomedi.  This is my twenty-second year of teaching and my 4th year in second grade. I have been a fifth-grade teacher, a first-grade teacher, and a coordinator of gifted and talented services.  I am extremely excited about our year together where everything will take flight and the sky’s the limit!
I attended the University of St. Thomas whereas as an undergraduate I majored in elementary education and sociology.  I have a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction as well as my master’s in gifted and talented education.  I also have an education specialist degree in leadership.  
Please reach out to me at any time with questions you might have.

Our School
At Wildwood Elementary School, we honor the whole child and teach future-ready skills of inspiring curiosity, embracing change, and turning ideas into action. Our talented teachers and staff members work with students in small class sizes and nurture a culture of excellence that has become the expectation and norm. Our students learn social-emotional skills alongside academic core areas in order to gain the foundation for academic success. In addition, they have the opportunity to engage in learning with specialists in gym, art, media, music, and STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) classes. Our elementary school is surrounded by green space and our students enjoy recess at our natural playground and attend classes in our outdoor classroom. We have an engaged and supportive parent community who volunteers and supports the school with academic opportunities and tools. Our District is a leader in engineering and science and we value academic areas that will spark curiosity, fuel creativity, and instill a lifelong passion for innovation in our students.
