Meet Us Monday: Mrs. Jenny Schmick, Jr. Kindergarten Assistant Teacher

As part of our dynamic Jr. Kindergarten classroom team, Assistant Teacher Mrs. Jenny Schmick spends her days inspiring our youngest ILS scholars. When the Jr. Kindergarten day ends, you can often find Mrs. Schmick assisting in 1st grade or one of our other lower school classrooms, and you will always see her smiling and waving to parents in the carpool line each afternoon!
