Jen immediately impressed me because she exuded passion for the field and dedication to her students. Jen teaches from a therapeutic art education perspective. She uses traditional fine art skills as the starting point for lessons which ask students to link their personal interests to art making. She provides her students with numerous opportunities to display their artwork and connect with the community through events. Jen is a practicing artist whose work focuses on social justice. She has designed and published inspiring, educational coloring books and curates exhibits at a local art space. She is a role model for her students and her peers – as well as an inspiration. Jen’s accomplishments include: 

  • New Jersey County Teachers of the Year 2016 Cohort, Burlington County
  • NJEA SOGI (Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity) Representative
