Hello! I am Jenn Christianson, elementary language arts teacher for 5th and 6th grades. I’ve been a teacher here at WSD since 2004 and I love my job! Being an avid reader and writer, I strive to bring my love of language to the classroom. In addition to teaching, I coach our Battle of the Books team.
