Hello, I am Jan Ringeisen.  I have been teaching at Truman Public Schools for 35 years.  During this time I taught preschool, fourth grade, kindergarten, third grade, first grade, and second grade.  The majority of my teaching experience has been in first grade.  I have also been the high school student council advisor and play director.  I have enjoyed working with the students that have come through this district.  In addition to my other hats, I also have been trained in Orton-Gillingham through the Reading Center in Rochester.  This training certifies me to tutor individuals with dyslexia.  I truly believe that this approach works well for all children.

I am married to Ross, who has worked as a customer service manager for Schwans for over 20 years.  We have lived in Truman for 28 years, and have three daughters.  I am proud to say that the girls grew up in the Truman school district and graduated from Truman.  Krista is a 4th grade teacher in Osceola, Iowa and is married to Brad Payne (assistant baseball coach at Graceland University); Amy is a registered nurse at Avera Heart Hospital in Sioux Falls, SD and is married to Blake Crosby, a 5th grade teacher and coach.  Our youngest daughter, Katie, is married to Lance Briard (PT student at Des Moines University) and is a  Rad. Tech doing CT at Mercy Hospital in Des Moines, Iowa. I have recently become a first time grandma to Crue (Amy and Blake's sweet son) and Charlotte (Krista and Brad's beautiful daughter). This new title is a ton of fun!


During my spare time, I love to spend time with family and friends.  I enjoy being outdoors whether it is in my yard or at the lake, walking/running, reading, and listening to music.  Ross and I also enjoy traveling.



Distance Learning Plan

The first grade plan is to include distance learners in our whole class as much as possible through Google Meet, which can be found on my class website under links.
