Hi! My name is Mrs. Jennifer Tekiela. I have been a teacher for 20 years. My career began in Dolton School District 148 where I taught 4th Grade, 5th Grade, P.E. and Title 1 Reading. Currently, I teach 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Grade Power Reading here at Pointe. I know I have the best job in the world. Your children make my job fun!

Favorite Thing About Teaching:
My favorite thing about teaching is having the opportunity to be a part of someone's life in such a positive way. Helping students, parents, and teachers truly makes me feel happy.
