Through teaching, she has managed to be an expert in forming relationships, keeping the classroom safe and secure, and creating rigorous tasks for her students.

Jennica is at ECS because of her previous experience with interdisciplinary projects and her love for the community. Jennica is a graduate of Illinois State University and holds a B.S. in Elementary Education. Currently, Jennica is finishing her Masters in Education Administration at Grand Canyon University.
