Jenny graduated from Taylor University in May of 2019. During that final semester, she took a long term subbing position in Marion Community Schools. When I called Jenny's former principal for a reference she went on and on about how Jenny was able to build a report with her students and turn the class around in just a few short weeks. Way to go Jenny! Interesting Facts about Jenny: Jenny's favorite color is blue Her favorite food is pizza She loves to eat at Panera and Olive Garden. So if you are looking to buy her a gift she will accept gifts cards from either of these places. Jenny loves all kinds of music and she said, "I go in phases. Right now I am in a country phase." Yee-Ha ya'll! I love country music too, Jenny! She likes to read in her free time. She recently read "The Freedom Writers Diary. It looks fabulous. Take a peek below. Jenny knew she wanted to be a teacher after helping to run a VBS day camp in inner-city Chicago one summer. "I am really excited and happy to be at Howard. I am looking forward to seeing my kids grow as learners this year. Jenny, we are so glad you are part of Team Hornets!!
