Welcome to Southeast Polk Junior High!

My name is Jenny Rinehart and it is an honor to serve as an Assistant Principal at Southeast Polk Junior High. Before entering administration in 2023, I taught special education and English-Language Arts at Southeast Polk Junior High for fifteen years. I also served as the School Administration Manager at Spring Creek for two years. I am a 2001 graduate of Southeast Polk. I completed my undergraduate degree and my master’s in Educational Leadership at the University of Northern Iowa.

I believe that relationships are key to providing quality educational experiences for our students and families. I believe that strong partnerships between our school, families, and community is vital in helping our students experience success at college, career, and civic life. My goal as a school leader is to provide a safe, inclusive, and positive academic learning environment for all students and staff.

I spend much of my day directly involved with our students, staff, and families in an effort to engage all students in a challenging curriculum delivered through quality instruction.  My main focus is being an instructional leader providing support for effective teaching and learning.  I enjoy working with the students, staff, and community at Southeast Polk!
