I'm Denise Jansen
I attended Purdue University and hold a Master's Degree in Elementary Education. After teaching 10 years in the Diocese Of Gary Catholic Schools, I stayed home to raise my son, Patrick, for a few of his early years. I was hired by the Crown Point Community Schools in the fall of 2001 and have happily made my home here at Solon. In the past, I have taught a year of kindergarten, a year of 6th grade and 7 years in third grade. This year is my 10th year of fourth grade.
I live in Crown Point with my husband, Robert, and son, Patrick. We share our home with our cat, Cuppie. My son is a United States Marine on Reserve Duty so he currently lives at home again. He hopes to be accepted into the Marine Corps Officer School with the dream to fly jets. Because I don't have to be a hands on mom, I have more spare time. I enjoy reading, cooking, traveling, coloring and watching cooking/ decorating shows.
