I love teaching and believe in finding the best in every student. Our education is alive and imaginative. It engages the whole self of the teacher as well as the child — together we create the art of education.
Jen found High Mowing School through her children. She had been teaching in middle school for almost 10 years when she discovered Waldorf education as a parent. After joining our faculty in 2011 and taking a class from grade 1 through grade 8, Jen cycled back to grade 1 in the 2018-2019 school year and is currently seeing her second group of students through to grade 8. She also brings her math expertise to students in various ways through mentoring and teaching math track in grade 6.
In addition to her role as class teacher, Jen has served as Faculty Chair for the lower school as well as Educational Support Coordinator. She is proud to serve High Mowing as a member of the Care group; Pedagogical Leadership group; and Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice (DEIJ) committee.
Outside of High Mowing, Jen is an adjunct professor at Antioch University New England, where she has taught in both the Integrated Learning Program for Elementary Education as well as the Waldorf Teacher Training Program, and has been on the team for the Center for Anthroposophy’s annual summer Renewal program for teachers. She participates in yoga regularly, hikes, camps, walks, enjoys reading and spending time with her husband and two teenagers who attend High Mowing School.
