Ms. Janet - Teacher

My name is Janet Klingert. I have been married to my husband, Tom, for 41-years and we have always lived in Fenton. We have two adult children, who went to Hillside for preschool. We have four grandchildren and two of them go to Hillside. I have been involved with children all my life: babysitting as a teenager and babysitting in my home after marrying and in other people’s homes. Before coming to Hillside, I worked with 2-3-year-old children at the Parkway School District and now I continue to work part time at night classes and three weeks of summer school with 3-5-year old’s. God has given me so much to be thankful for. I am so happy to be working with your children now at Hillside.
