Always up for a challenge, Jennifer moved to a small acreage, during a pandemic, with her family and ever-growing animal population. Blessed with Attention Deficit Disorder, Jennifer has the unique ability to focus her energy and attention to promote positive changes in education. Working for Red Deer Catholic Regional School Division she is currently an Inclusive Learning Teacher for grades three to five students and teachers, providing support in literacy, growing inclusive practices, numeracy development, and engaging students and teachers through technology.
