Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Jen Van Dusen
Welcome to fourth grade! I am so excited to work with each student this year as we learn and grow together.
I graduated from North Central College, Naperville, Ill., with a degree in elementary education and began my career in Indian Prairie School District 204 as a fifth grade teacher. In the spring 2001, I received my master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from Aurora University, in Aurora, Ill. After teaching fifth grade in Naperville for 11 years, I decided to make a switch to work in District 308. I am very excited to be working in the district from which I graduated.
I started in District 308 at East View Elementary, teaching fifth grade, and when East View closed to become a kindergarten center I was transferred to Hunt Club, where I spent three years. I started at Prairie Point in 2014 teaching 5th grade and after 23 years of being a 5th grade teacher, I began teaching 4th grade 3 years ago. I am very happy to have been at Prairie Point for the past several years and am looking forward to many more years of teaching in this amazing community.
