Ms. Jennings has had the distinct privilege to work as a school secretary, classroom teacher, department chair, and assistant principal.  A proud military veteran, she has taught in grades Pre-K through high school and she believes that children are one of our most valuable resources.  She seeks to help students and teachers to develop self-confidence in order to accomplish personal goals as well as the goals of the classroom, school, district, and educational communities at large.

A 2010 Teacher of the Year, Ms. Jennings has worked in both the public and private sector and in rural, suburban, and urban school districts.  These varied experiences have helped to establish an extensive collection of valuable experiences in the field of education.

Ms. Jennings has a heart for mentoring and currently serves on her district's mentoring steering committee.  She led efforts as the founder of a boys mentoring organization, K.I.N.G.S..which flourishes to this day.  An advocate for all children, "Ms. J", as she is affectionately called, finds pleasure in serving students from various backgrounds.

In her spare time, Ms. Jennings enjoys traveling, reading, journaling, football, and volunteering.
