Hello! My name is Jennifer Van Es and I teach second grade at Hospers Elementary. I live in Alton with my husband, Josh, and three sons, Jacoby, Nolan and Brooks. I enjoy golfing, shopping and playing outside with my family. One of my favorite things about teaching second grade is seeing students transition from reading picture books to reading chapter books by the end of the school year. We are able to cover so many great authors and series at all the differing levels. Some of my favorite books series for kids are: Junie B. Jones, Bailey School Kids, Black Lagoon, and Magic Tree House.
