Jenni's path in the field of education has taken many unexpected twists and turns. Upon graduating from Eastern Oregon University, she fully expected to get a classroom of her own and stay there for the duration of her career, but she quickly discovered life doesn't always unfold as one might expect! Yes, she has loved teaching in her own public school classrooms, but she has also taught in private, university and homeschool settings as well. She has additionally spent a large portion of her career working as an education writer, where she authored publications that include research, marketing, and curriculum.
Jenni is passionate about investing in quality relationships with her students and their families, knowing this is a key component to student success. When not teaching, Jenni is a mom and wife who loves to bake, read, write, and have long conversations with her family under the big tree in their back yard.
