Mrs. Jennifer has taught in China for the last 2 years. She left 16 years of teaching experience back in Alberta to move to China with her husband Mike and daughter Meagan who will be attending CIS in grade 9. Jennifer has met amazing students with diverse language, physical, behavioral and cognitive needs. The challenge and reward these students have given her are what makes her teaching career a joy every day. She has appreciated working as a classroom teacher, parent group facilitator, student teacher mentor and resource lead. She believes children need to feel safe, calm and secure at school so they can explore their unique strengths every day.
