Jennifer is very excited to be a part of the iLEAD Exploration team. She has been in education since 1994. Most of her career was spent in the traditional classroom setting as a high school science teacher specializing in biology, geology, and physical science. She then spent four years at an independent study program helping students from kindergarten through 10th grade. Most recently, she was in a kindergarten classroom in which she was named “Teacher of the Year”. Though this last assignment brought her much joy, she decided it was time to explore a new classroom setting and found the iLEAD Exploration program. She feels homeschool is a wonderful place for parents to teach amazing things that just cannot happen in the classroom setting.
Jennifer and her husband live in Joshua Tree, California, with their three sons. Jennifer stays busy shuffling boys from place to place, but loves time at home, hiking with her dog, reading books, and taking naps.
