Jacob Klein

Pointer Kids Club Before & After School Program Special Education Assistant

Hometown: I moved to Mineral Point in 2018; before that I lived in Belmont.
High school graduated from: Mineral Point
College: UW Platteville pursuing education degree (history)
Previous employment: I work at Camp Phillip as a camp counselor during the summer and Subway during the school year.
Family: I live in Mineral Point with my mom and younger brother. My sister, brother in law, and two nieces live in Madison. My dad lives in Dickeyville.
Hobbies/free time interests: I really enjoy being active.  Disc golf is one of my favorite outdoor activities.
What attracted you to apply in #PointerNation?: I saw it as a good opportunity to increase my experience in the education field but was also drawn to the position because of the work in supporting students with disabilities.  I’ve spent a lot of time volunteering with Special Olympics so I knew I would enjoy the interactions with the students during the non-structured time of the after school program.
