She began her teaching career as an environmental educator at nature centers and residential outdoor programs. After realizing that she absolutely loved teaching, she completed a master’s degree in education from Lehigh University. Over the past 20 years, Jennifer taught students aged 3 through 13 in a variety of settings and classrooms. Boise has been home for the past two decades and she spends as much time as she can outdoors with her family.
