A little information about Mrs. Lensen.... I graduated from Aquin Elementary, Cascade High School, Loras College, and Marquette University. I have been teaching at Aquin for the past 20 years--ten of which were actually in the junior high. I have also taught 4th grade at Regina Elementary in Iowa City, been an adjunct teacher of composition at NICC, and a Teaching Assistant of composition at Marquette University. My hobbies are READING, walking, biking on the Heritage Trail, and gardening. If I had to think of two book titles that might reflect a little more about me--they might be Little House in the Big Woods (yes, the above picture is of the Lensen home) and Clifford the Big Red Dog (but our beloved St. Bernard mix is actually named Bruiser). The most important thing for parents to know about me is how fortunate I feel to have been able to teach fourth grade at Aquin for the last ten years. I enjoy fourth graders so much, and although I love to teach all the fourth grade subjects, my yearly goal is to try to get fourth graders to love reading as much as I do.
