jenMeet Jen, our Literacy Coach at C'port!

What inspired you to go into your present field and how did you come to be at Cambridgeport School?
I was inspired to go into education when I realized that it was a perfect match of my passion for kids and my own intellectual curiosity. I've stayed in the field because there is nothing quite like seeing a kid be able to do something that he/she wasn't able to do before. I happened upon Cambridgeport when I was looking for a job in the public schools. I student taught in Cambridge, and had been at a private school for four years afterwards. I interviewed at Cambridgeport, got the job, and the rest is history! I am so grateful to be in a place with a staff that is so passionate and committed to children.

What do you like to do after school?
After school, I like to spend time with my friends and family exploring the city or enjoying a good meal.

What challenges do you enjoy?
I enjoy confronting challenges I haven't experienced before, and experimenting with different things until I am able to find a solution.

What’s your favorite sports team?
My favorite sports team is any team from Tufts University.
