  • Jen Hackett

    Junior Kindergarten 4 Teacher

    B.A. Early Childhood Education — University of Tennessee of Chattanooga

    M.A. Supervision and Instruction — Lincoln Memorial University

    I believe that every child is special and unique. Each child has personality traits and cognitive ideas that make a classroom a special, dynamic place. It is my job as a teacher to take children’s interests, thoughts and ideas to then inspire them to dig deeper for reasoning, questions, and answers. I do this by having a personal relationship with my students, creating a confortable/positive learning environment, and by continuing my own individual pedagogical formation.
