Hello, My name is Jenny Kramer and I teach fourth grade at Grant Wood Elementary. This is my 16th year teaching in the Cedar Rapids Community School District. I spent the first 10 years teaching second grade at Wilson Elementary in CR. I have been a Grant Wood Griffin for 6 years and have taught second, fourth, and fifth grades here.

I received my Bachelor of the Arts degree in Elementary Education from the University of Northern Iowa (Go Panthers!) and a Master’s of the Arts in Education from Mount Mercy University.

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband Tony, 11-year-old daughter Addy, 4 ½ year-old son Landon, and our dog, Boomer. I always find time for yoga, walking/biking, and reading a good book. This summer, I started meditating daily to start the day on a positive note. I hope to bring calm, collaboration, and engagement into my students’ lives.
