Hello! My name is Jennifer DeRousse (Flieg) and this is my 9th year teaching at St. Joseph School. I started teaching pre-kindergarten at St. Joseph School in August 2010. I taught pre-kindergarten for 4 years. In 2014 I changed grade levels and moved up to teach kindergarten and 1st grade.
In November 2014 I married Aaron DeRousse. In June 2015 we found out that we would become parents in March of 2016. On February 19th we got a surprise and our son Austin was born a month early. He is doing well and growing like a weed. He is truly the best and so much fun to be around.
In the fall of 2017 we found out that we would be expecting another baby in April 2018. On April 2, 2018 we were blessed with a beatiful baby girl, named Erica.
In May 2014 we added another addition to our family and got ourselves a pitbull puppy. Her name is Sophie. She is a typical puppy that likes to chew on things that she is not supposed to chew on. Hopefully she will grow out of that very soon.
I am an alumni of St. Joseph School. I attended St. Joseph School from kindergarten until 6th grade. After 6th grade I continued my education at Valle Catholic. I graduated from high school in 2004. In August of 2004 I began attending college at Southeast Missouri State University. I graduated from SEMO in December 2008 and received my Bachelor’s degree and I am certified to teach children from birth-6th grade.
I am happy to be teaching at St. Joseph School. This school is like one big family…everyone knows each other and will go out of their way to help out any way they can.
