My name is Jennifer Cariveau and I teach Kindergarten in Room 8 at Chatfield Elementary. I started teaching in 2001 after graduating from University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. My educational background is both in Early Childhood Birth-3rd Grade with an additional certification in K-6th Grade. I have have had the pleasure of working in every grade level in my career, but have always had a special place in my heart for Kindergarten. "Proud Kindergarten Teacher" has been my longest standing title. laugh 

I have taught in a handful of districts in the Twin Cities prior to coming to Belle Plaine. It is an honor to be a part of such a wonderful, warm, and caring team at Chatfield Elementary. I feel fortunate to spend my days with amazing kids. Building a strong classroom community, where each child feels honored, is at the top of my list each school year. 

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with friends and family. I have a daughter that studies musical theater, which I enjoy sharing with my students. Her theater company is our second "home" during the school year.

Open communication is very important to me. I believe that we are in a partnership to support your child on their educational journey! I am so happy to be a part of it! Please feel free to contact me at any time. I consider us "mutual cheerleaders" for your child. Thank you for trusting me to give them the best Kindergarten year possible!smiley
