About The Teacher
Jennifer Simon ("Miss Jenn" to her students) is a graduate of Keene State College with degrees in Early Childhood and Elementary Education as well as a minor in English. She has always known that her gifting is working with children, and has been in classroom situations as an aid or teacher for over 30 years. Most recently, she taught for Landry Academy and The Academy at Bright Ideas Press, with previous experiences in homeschool cooperatives, as well as teaching art in her home studio. Her passion is inspiring students to find joy in reading and writing, and in seeing the beauty that the greatest artist ever has created around us. She strives to help students take pride and pleasure in the work they do and the art that they create.
Jennifer is a boy-mom through and through. Raising four well-rounded sons and homeschooling them for the past 15 years has given her experience as an educator that no teaching degree can rival. Jennifer has found her niche with middle schoolers, as well as those with learning challenges. With a balance of fun and focus, Miss Jenn shares her love of books, writing, and art with students, while inspiring them to perform to the best of their abilities, whatever level that may be.
