My name is Jodi Sanken and I have been teaching in the Howard Lake- Waverly- Winsted School district for over 29 years. I have spent my teaching years mainly in the 2nd grade, but have taught 3rd grade for summer school and a few years in 1st grade. I have also been involved with coaching volleyball and track. I LOVE my 2nd graders- their personalities, sense of humors and when they say “I get it now.”
My husband and I have two children and live on a farm near Hutchinson. I enjoy watching sports, camping, especially volleyball, scrapbooking and spending time with friends and family.
Education has always been an important part of my life! Four of my sisters are also teachers! I believe in providing a safe, fair, fun, challenging and engaging environment for my students. Having a positive partnership with parents is very important for understanding what the child needs to learn.
Alone we can do so little; Together we can do so much! -Helen Keller
