I am married with 2 children. My family and I enjoy doing many things together. I am a volunteer Girl Scout Troop leader. We are active in our community. My children also keep me busy with their extracurricular activities.

               

I love working with children and helping them grow and learn. I work in all the grade levels as needed and love every minute of it.  One of my favorite parts of being at Enders, is observing the students growing and learning.

Hi! My name is Jenni Boesker, and I am proud to be a paraeducator at Enders! 

I work with 1st and 5th grade primarily, but I adore and strive to get to know all of our students. 

I have a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Kansas State University and began my career in higher education in 2008 while working at Independence Community College. Later, I would conduct high school workshops in the greater St. Louis area while working for Hickey College. 

It was during this time that I discovered a love for teaching students.  I took a hiatus from working to raise our daughter, Brooklynn (now almost ten years old and the light of our lives).  When she entered 2nd grade, I began working as a paraeducator while taking classes at WSU to obtain my degree in Elementary Education. 

With the support of my husband, Steve, I am proud to say I will earn my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education in May of 2024, and I can't wait to have my own classroom in the fall! 

In the meantime, I am so blessed to be at a wonderful school with excellent staff, students, and administration.

My name is Tariq Barksdale. I’m currently a Para at ENDERS COMMUNITY SERVICE AND LEADERSHIP MAGNET ELEMENTARY, a proud father of two wonderful children who will someday attend this fun-loving school, and I'm also aspiring to be a teacher. Maybe I'll still be here in the coming future, but not as a para.
