Hello!  Welcome to Kindergarten!  My name is Mrs. Jennifer Hermsen!  I will be your teacher this year!  I hope you are having a wonderful summer!  I feel very lucky to be your kindergarten teacher!  I love teaching kindergarten and am very excited to get to know each and every one of you!


I’d like to tell you a little bit about myself.  This is my twentieth year of teaching kindergarten here at St. Mary’s!  I live here in Winona with my husband Brad, our two daughters Paige and Delaney, our son Logan and our dog Cooper!  Paige is 15 years old and she will be in tenth grade at WSHS.  She loves to play soccer, golf and travel!  She also works part time at Beno’s Deli!  Delaney is 13 years old and she will be in eighth grade at WMS.  She loves to dance, play soccer and bake!  Logan is 7 years old.  He loves to build with legos, play sports and play Beyblades!  He will be in second grade at St. Stan’s.   When I am not teaching kindergarten, I like to go for walks, read and especially spend time with my family!  We like to spend time together just hanging out and especially like going up north to the cabin!


In order to get everything ready for the first day of school, please bring ALL OF YOUR SCHOOL SUPPLIES to Open House.  Open House takes place on Thursday, August 16th from 4:30-6:30!  Some of our school supplies will be shared by the class and some items will be kept in each child’s supply box.  Please only label the following items with your child’s name, CRAYONS (label each individual crayon), MARKERS, COLORED PENCILS, FOLDERS AND SCISSORS. PLEASE DO NOT LABEL ANY OTHER ITEMS.  Please also bring a recent picture of yourself for our hallway display! (These pictures will be part of your portfolio at the end of the school year.)


Finally, I just want to let your moms and dads know that if they have any questions or concerns about anything, they can call me here at school or at home.  My phone number is 429-1731.  I also have email that I can access at school and at home.  My email address is


I can’t wait to see you at Open House on August 16!
