Jenny Hempel

Head Teacher, 1st and 2nd Grade

Jenny is a transplanted non-native Chicagoan who has lived here as long as she has been at Ancona. This is her 24th year here, and it still feels like a such dynamic place to learn, be challenged and supported, and grow as a person and educator. She lives in Portage Park with her wife and two cats, Bianca and Keeghan. They’re about the cutest cats you’ve ever seen!
