Meet the Teacher

Hi! My name is Ms. Vencel and I am so excited to be a part of the awesome team at SFMS! It’s going to be a fun year full of lots of learning and new adventures. 

 

I was born and raised in Minneapolis, MN and I am the oldest of 3 girls!  In 2004, I graduated from Minnesota State University, Mankato with a B.S. Elementary Education Degree and a specialty in Middle School. I did take a few years off while in college and became a flight attendant for an international company and traveled all over the world! This began my love for traveling.  In 2011, I graduated with my Master’s Degree from Union University. I have been teaching for the past 12 years in MN, TN, online at K12.com, and overseas.

 

I have two great kids-Lucas (6th grade) and Olivia (3rd grade) and a Yorkie-Cody (16 years old).

 

In 2011, we moved to Hong Kong and lived as Expats for several years. I worked for WiseOwl tutoring company. While tutoring, I also created and instructed “American History Matters!” course for American Expat kids. I had all sorts of fun and interesting experiences in SE Asia.

 

Please if you have any questions and or concerns don’t hesitate to contact me at svencel@colliervilleschools.orgJ
