About Me

Hi, my name is Jennifer, and I am quite proud to be on the teaching team at Prescott! My roots are here with Parkland School Division, where I began my journey as a student, and where I discovered ways to explore opportunities that have since shaped who I am as a person and as a professional. Prior to pursuing a career in education, I worked primarily as a freelance visual artist, which challenged me to be creative in defining my entrepreneurial skill set. I discovered my passion for teaching through my role as an art educator. I believe art is an essential aspect of learning, as it provides multiple means for expression and comprehension. I am always looking for ways to bring a creative edge to lessons, which is why I am a strong advocate for project-based learning opportunities. Outside of school, I value time spent with my husband and two-year old daughter.
