School Staff – Jolene VanDeLoo

Meet Jolene VanDeLoo — Kindergarten Teacher

Why I love St. John School?

It feels like a place everyone can belong. I love the parent involvement! I love that the students and staff are so faith based that it makes the school function like a well-oiled machine.

My favorite part of teaching?

I love seeing the light bulb moment happen with each kiddo. It doesn’t matter if it has taken one minute or one year for something to click, when it does it’s a magical moment!

What I like to do outside of school?

I enjoy spending time with family and friends, especially now spending time with my newborn. I enjoy staying active through running and volleyball.

Bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.
