Mrs. Jorgensen joined the staff at Saint Ambrose in 2016. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from the University of Iowa, and a Master’s in STEM Education from St. Kate’s.

She decided to become a teacher because of the teachers she had…at Saint Ambrose! Mrs. Jorgensen admired their teaching styles and it made her want to emulate them. One of the subjects she loves teaching her students is STEM. She enjoys watching them think through the engineering design process as they work to overcome different challenges. Her favorite thing about being part of a Catholic school is the sense of community and the respect, compassion, honesty and global awareness that students are taught.

Mrs. Jorgensen believes that students can learn and grow academically in a safe environment, where they are respected and encouraged to do their best. So that she can meet the needs of all learners, she uses a variety of teaching strategies. Mrs. Jorgensen wants learning to be fun and exciting in her classroom, with students wanting to learn more. She works hard to create a positive and welcoming environment in her classroom and wants students to understand that making mistakes are part of learning. Her interests outside of teaching include volleyball and college Football, especially the Iowa Hawkeyes.

“Each student is an individual with different learning styles. As a teacher, I must adapt to what will help them learn the best.” – Kristen Jorgensen
