Welcome to Second Grade

Mrs. Israel


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 nineteenth year of teaching. I have been a fifth grade teacher, a first grade teacher, and most recently our district’s 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 where 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 my education specialist degree in leadership.  
Please reach out to me at any time with questions you might have.
