My name is Jennifer Gavette, and I've been teaching at TK Schools for about 17 years. My very first year at TK I was an eigth grade Language Arts teacher at the Middle School. The following year I switched to 2nd grade and taught those lovely littles for 15 years! I loved it there but felt like I needed a little change. So...I switched to 3rd grade and am now team teaching with Mrs. Hannapel. I am in charge of math, science and social studies while Mrs. Hannapel handles everything language arts! It's the start of a new adventure for everyone!
TK Schools is a great place to be. The students, parents and staff are friendly and always willing to lend a helping hand. I feel fortunate to be a part of a wonderful and generous community.
My family and I live right around the corner from Duncan Lake. I have three kids: Caleb who is a sophomore at Davenport University, Cameron who is a Junior at the HS and Tyler who is in 8th grade at the MS. My husband, Dave, works at Our Daily Bread Ministries and also coaches Middleville Youth Football and Youth Baseball teams. I also have a seven year old labradoodle named Mazee who we love dearly. Last December we rescued a beagle mix named Blue who has certainly been a wonderful addition to our family. My entire family is sports enthusiasts so I am a busy mom carting kids to cross country, football, basketball, track and baseball practices. My favorite sport is volleyball, but I enjoy watching and participating in almost any sport.
My goal for this school year is to have fun with your child - with a lot of learning thrown in as well :-). I want your child to be happy to come to school, to love to learn new things and to feel safe and important in our classroom. 2019-2020 is sure to be a big growth year for your child. I'm excited to be a part of it!
