Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Jean Junis

As a child, I knew I wanted to be a teacher! I have been teaching for many years, and I've been at Kirkwood for 7 years. I grew up in Illinois, attended the teachers' college, Illinois State University. Later I earned my Master's Degree from Viterbo University, Wisconsin. My teaching experience includes almost every grade level, K-12! Currently I teach small group reading/writing, as supplemental instruction. I love teaching reading and writing, and sharing the joy of literature. When not at school, you can find me reading and writing every day at home! Also, I spend a LOT of time with my family, including my kids and grandkids. I have published poetry, essays, and a children's book. The kids, families, and staff at Kirkwood are awesome, and I am grateful to teach here!
