How many innovations have been left undiscovered because students haven’t been able to bring their whole selves to school?
Jennifer has been teaching in independent schools for over twenty years. She began her career at Germantown Friends School in Philadelphia where she taught math for ten years while simultaneously completing her doctorate at nearby Bryn Mawr College. After graduating, she returned to her home state of Massachusetts where she has taught at both The Rivers School and Bancroft School. Outside of teaching math, Jennifer’s biggest passion is diversity, equity, and inclusion work. She has founded both faculty and student groups devoted to DEI work at previous schools, and she looks forward to continuing this work at NEIA.
