Teacher Bio, Mrs. Whittier, Seventh Grade

Mrs. Jennifer Whittier

B.S., Ohio State University

M.A., Baldwin-Wallace University

Reading Endorsement, Mount Saint Joseph University

 

I am a native of Northeast Ohio, a lifelong Cleveland sports fan, and an avid learner.  I have taught and tutored students for six years.  Incorporating cooperative learning along with positive challenges and risks for students is a goal that I strive for every day.  I try to engage students by providing instruction that has interesting connections to their lives as well as their academic abilities.  I find this age of technology to be raising the bar for both teacher and student. I spend a good deal of time researching and trying to implement a reading and writing program that provides balance and rigor.  A student of elementary and high school Catholic education myself, I believe in its core and message.  I am grateful for having the opportunity to work in a parochial school environment. Outside the classroom, I am busy raising my three boys with my husband and enjoy cooking and traveling.
