Jill Arendt - Director
I am so excited to be a part of the team of staff, students and families at the Art and Science Academy! I have been in education for 25 years in the Mounds View Public School District! I taught 2nd grade students and 5th grade students for 17 years. I then had the opportunity to work in administration for 8 years. I wore many different hats in that 8 years… curriculum coordinator, dean of students, assistant principal and program administrator at a kindergarten center. I believe this gave me great experience to begin here at the Art and Science Academy!
I have an Elementary Education Degree from Mankato State University, a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Bethel University and I also hold a K-12 Principal Licensure. I have a daughter who will be a junior in high school this fall and a son who will be a senior in high school this fall. They still bring me so much JOY! In my free time I love to garden, walk, be at the cabin, read, go boating, ski, be lazy or hang out with my dog Molly.
I am thrilled to begin this next school year with all the staff, students and parents at the Art and Science Academy. Please take the time to stop by and say hello!!
