Jenny took her experiences as a classroom teacher for ten years, combined it with her doctorate studies of teaching and learning theory, and her three years coaching teachers across the country, and birthed the concept of CraftED Curriculum-a resource that could make deeper learning more accessible for teachers and students. grounded in her own struggles and those of teachers she supported, striving to implement deeper learning, Jenny came up with the idea of creating a place where teachers could directly get what they needed to bring the Deeper Learning Competencies to life.
I was a classroom teacher for nine years. I taught grades 5-10 in San Diego, CA.I was a founding staff member of High Tech High North County and taught 9th and 10th grade humanities for five years there. I went on to work with schools, districts, and CMOs across the country as a School Development Coach for New Tech Network for the following three years. I also currently serve as a member of BIE’s National Faculty. In my time working within the Deeper Learning Network I have helped teachers implement engaging teaching practices directly in schools that I coached in CA, NM, AZ and TX, through various national training events for teachers and leaders from over 27 states, and Professional Development for teacher leaders in Australia and teachers in Canada and Mexico.
I am a proud graduate of San Diego State University and the Claremont Colleges. I hold a BA in Political Studies, a Master’s in Cross-Cultural Education, and CA teaching credentials in Multiple Subjects, ELA and Social Science. My doctoral research was an incredible experience that introduced me to my love of philosophy. During my five years at CGU I studied pedagogical works of great minds and ultimately applied this knowledge in a case study that analyzed teacher-student relationships, specifically collegial pedagogy in Project Based Learning. I founded CraftED Curriculum in early 2016 and have had my touch on every element of building the brand and company to date. I live in Cardiff-by-the-Sea, CA. I am married to a supportive teammate and we are the proud parents of two incredible children.
