Staff Spotlight - Jami Shlensky

I'm Jami Shlensky and this summer will be my 3rd summer at North Star and I am glad to be back! I spent the year teaching 4th and 5th grade at Wilmot Elementary School in Deerfield, Illinois. This is the elementary school that I attended as a kid! It was fun to be back as a teacher, this time around!

At camp you can find me taking care of the littlest campers (Laney and Summer) or down at the waterski dock! I can't wait to see everyone there for a great summer!
