Hello there! My name is Jenn Hyde, and I’m very excited to join the 3rd grade team at Brubaker! This is my first year in the classroom, but not at Brubaker. I completed my student teaching here in 2010 and it’s great to be back! I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Iowa and later received my Bachelor’s in Elementary Education with a Reading Endorsement from Upper Iowa University. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my two girls, Finley and Dallas, my husband Jack, and my dog Lucy. It’s been a crazy start to my teaching career, but I look forward to this opportunity and to working with you and your child to make this a great year!
