About the Pioneer Ridge Information Team

Jeanne LaMoore

I am a licensed media specialist, grades K-12, as well as a licensed English teacher for grades 7-12. I have been teaching in Chaska since 2006 and I love it here! Before that, I spent nine years as the media specialist at New Prague Middle School. I was also a stay-at-home mom for a while, an English teacher, and a substitute teacher.

My husband Louie and I have three sons. Our oldest, Morgan, is an electrical engineer at Graco Industries. Alex got married in spring 2013 and is a mechanical engineer for Winnebago Industries in Forest City, Iowa. Nick is also a  mechanical engineer, working for MTS in Eden Prairie. All six of us (including my daughter-in-law Stacie) love to read and are technophiles!

I love teaching, especially at the middle school level. I am an intermediate quilter and love the feeling of accomplishment when I create something with my hands. I enjoy going for walks, going out to eat, visiting with friends, and traveling.
