Hello and welcome to our classroom webpage! I am so glad you are here checking everything out!

My name is Jennifer Johanns (Mrs. Johanns) and I am the 3rd grade English teacher at St. Anthony School. I am married to my husband Adam and we  welcomed our baby girl, Annelise, in April of 2016. This will be my 14th year of teaching, and all of those years have been here at at St. Anthony’s! This year marks my 8th year teaching 3rd grade; I previously taught 2nd grade.

Growing up in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, I attended Catholic Schools from Kindergarten through High School (Immaculate Conception Elementary and Regis High School). I attended Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa and received my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis on Catholic Education. I also have a reading endorsement.

I have one younger brother and three younger sisters. I am Godmother to my 5 year old nephew, Gabriel. My family is spread across 4 states but we have a wonderful time when we can all be together.  I am a fan of the Marquette Golden Eagles, Wisconsin Badgers, and Iowa State but especially the Green Bay Packers. So feel free to call me a Cheesehead! My hobbies include attending Mass, playing volleyball, running, reading and watching anything that is historical fiction, genealogy, spending time with friends, and creating Pinterest projects (though I have yet to learn how to sew!) I love history, old furniture, Christmas lights, thunderstorms, sweets and the color purple.

I am excited for another year of teaching 3rd grade. Please let me know if you ever need anything. I look forward to a fun and faith-filled year.

God bless!
Mrs. Johanns

  • Please check your child's green folder every night and remove all papers that need to be kept at home. Please sign and return any necessary items. 
  • Please check your child's assignment notebook every night for homework information and other important notes. 
  •  In Third Grade, students are expected to read 5 days a week, for 20 minutes or more at a time. They are also expected to record the books they are reading and their reading minutes on their calendar. Parents, please sign your name at the end of every week on the reading log. 
  • Please remember belts are part of the school uniform and must be worn with shorts or pants. Also, tennis shoes are also recommended. The kids do a lot of running and jumping throughout the day and they are most definitely needed on PE Days (Tuesdays and Thursdays). Please, no fancy boots or flats.
