    I love teaching art to my wonderful Rose students. Not only do I get to inspire them, but they inspire me as well. They make me want to work harder, be a better person, and achieve more every year.

    I love teaching kindergarten because the children come to school with a "blank slate" and I get to be a part of their first school experience. Rose School is a wonderful place to learn and grow! Once a stingray, always a stingray!Jen WessbergTeacher
