All About Me:
Despite the ups and downs throughout middle school and high school, Jennifer has always had a passion for teaching. She didn’t let the mistakes of others hinder that part of her life. She knew what she was brought into this world for and is reminded of that on a regular basis as he sees her interact with students and children.
Jennifer has been an educator since 2003 with experience in elementary, middle school, and college. Math has been her passion since a young age which no doubt resulted in her secondary math teaching career. After a short break to work on her business, Jennifer has now gone back into the classroom working with 7th Grade in a small rural town in East Texas.
As well as teaching, Jennifer is also a Differentiated Curriculum Designer and Consultant traveling the nation to train teachers on the effectiveness of Interactive Notebooks and Differentiation in the classroom. When she is not traveling and training she lives in a suburb of Dallas, TX with her husband Billy and their three dachshunds and McNab Shepherd. And during the 2015-2016 school year, Jennifer was inducted into the National Association of Professional Women of America’s VIP Woman of the Year Circle.
Jennifer opened her online store on Teachers Pay Teachers in the September of 2010 without any plans for it becoming what it is today. As of June 2021, she has over 800 items available to teachers from all grade levels. This passion of Jennifer’s keeps her up at night working in her office as well as constantly creating new ideas.
“With each passing minute comes the chance to dream, create and inspire.”
