I was born Jill Meyer in Marshall, Minn. I moved to Arizona during my grade school years and attended Arizona Lutheran Academy for high school. I graduated from Martin Luther College, New Ulm, Minn., in 1996 with a degree in Elementary Education. I then became Mrs. Hagedorn when I married my husband, Jason. I finished my Early Childhood degree (also from MLC) in 2000.

We began our married life in New Ulm, where my husband taught at St. Paul Lutheran School. Our ministry took us to Apostles Lutheran School in San Jose, Calif., for three years and then to La Crosse, Wis., in 2005. During our La Crosse years, I was the director/teacher at Little Lambs Preschool in La Crescent, Minn., for ten years. I also taught at First Lutheran School in La Crosse, Wis., and spent my last year teaching Kindergarten at Mt. Calvary/ Grace Lutheran School in La Crosse. My husband’s call to Shoreland Lutheran High School in Somers brought us to the Kenosha area in 2017. I am excited to get to know all the families at Bethany and continue learning with the Kindergarters!

I have been blessed with five children of my own. Nick, Carter, Cassie, Larissa, and TJ. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, crafting and following my kid’s sports teams.
