Jenna is our resident dyslexia expert. She teaches English and Language Arts using a multisensory teaching approach. She holds a B.S. in Education and a M.Ed. in Reading and Writing and M.Ed. in Academic Language Therapy from Southern Methodist University in Dallas. She is a Master Reading Teacher and Certified Reading Specialist. Jenna has spent more than 20 years in the field of education. She began her career teaching in Houston and then moved to Washington D.C. where she worked in Education Policy and Accreditation where she traveled nationally and internationally.
Jenna’s passion for traveling started at a young age. Born in Oklahoma, the oil business sent her family to live in Indonesia for three years, Australia for five years, and Houston, Texas. Jenna has four children, one of which is severely dyslexic. This has fueled her passion to advocate for children to be taught the way they are able to learn best.
When Jenna isn’t teaching she loves to spend as much time as possible at the beach.
