Hi! My name is Priscilla Jenness. This is my 9th year at
West Holt. For the first 4 years, I taught at Union Elementary,
West Holt's rural school. This is my 7th year teaching 2nd
and I love everything about it! The last 4 years, I have coached
the high school dance team with Mrs. Jakubowski.
A little about me: I was born and raised in Holt County. I am a
2007 high school graduate of O'Neill High. I participated in
dance, FCCLA, drill team, cheer, yearbook, student council,
and O-Club. After high school, I attended the University of
Sioux Falls in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. While in college,
I cheered for football and basketball at the NAIA level. I graduated
with an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and Reading
Also, in 2014, I received my graduate degree from Concordia
University in Portland, Oregon with a focus on Curriculum and
Instruction with a specialized focus in mathematics.
In my spare time, I love hanging out with my husband, Tim, and our
boys - Knox and Rex. We have permanent camp spots by Yankton
and we spend most of our summer there! I also enjoy crafting and reading
True Crime books.
