Growing up in Elkhorn, Jenny (Nommensen) Krauklis is a 1998 LLHS grad. She attended MLC and graduated with an Education degree from Wisconsin Lutheran College, where she is also currently pursuing a graduate degree in Educational Leadership. As of 2017, she's been married for 16 years to Brandon, (who works at Central Ceiling Systems in Deerfield), and they have 4 children here on earth —Abel, a LLHS sophomore, Luke (6th) Benjamin (5th) and Selah (K)—and Jonah, in heaven.
While her family, homemaking and their church home at St. Paul in Lake Mills have been her primary focus for years, Jenny also owns a health and wellness business, was Childcare Director at St. Paul 2010–12, substitute taught at area LES, and has served as LLHS Varsity Volleyball Coach for several years (see her Warrior volleyball pages here).
“I also enjoy watching my kids at all of their activities, spending time outdoors, eating Skittles and recreating American Ninja Warrior in our backyard,” she shares with a smile, and continues: “I have always been grateful for the education and training Lakeside gave me when I was in high school. In fact, Mr. Paul Bauer is the one who inspired me to be a teacher and coach. When I first came back to the Lakeside family as a volleyball coach, it was a blessing to see my athletes grow in Christ, as well as in their athletic abilities. I am thankful and excited to be able to get to know more of the student body and faculty as a teacher now, as well.”
