Jen has been teaching in high poverty and minority school districts for the past 14 years. She loves to see the great achievements students gain and believes that having a strong positive relationship with both students and their parents is what makes for a great educator.
During her time at Illinois State, Jen took advantage of the University’s study abroad program when she student taught in England. She also was an active member of Student Alumni Council and a Preview Guide.
As an alum, Jen wanted to make sure that young alumni continued to stay engaged with ISU and helped establish the Chicago Young Alumni Network.
She currently serves on the Alumni Association board of directors' Homecoming and Redbird Prime committees. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
