Jenny is excited to return to teaching in a dynamic school environment after eight years of privately tutoring while staying home to raise her children. She attended high school on the North Shore of Chicago, received her B.A. in Secondary Education and English from Boston College, her M.Ed. in Language and Literacy from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and her M.A. in Educational Leadership from Northeastern Illinois University. Prior to motherhood, Jenny taught full-time for eight years in public and private schools. Her favorite teaching position was at a progressive bilingual school in the mountains of Costa Rica, where her second and third grade class had its own organic garden. In her free time, Jenny enjoys spending time with her family (including their Bernese Mountain Dog), gardening, traveling, and learning.
