Jenne comes to Bridge School with a wealth of experiences in working with children and families. Jenne began her career by running a home child care program. After this, Jenne worked for the Parent/Child Center, where she held a variety of positions, including teacher, parent educator, Success By Six coordinator, Addison County Child Care Trainer, and Resource and Referral Specialist. These experiences gave her the needed skills to transition to Director of the College Street Children’s Program, a position she held for ten years.
Her goals for teaching are to ensure that every child is supported in their natural inquisitiveness about the world, that they feel loved in every setting, and that they are given the skills to be a caring member of a community.
Jenne lives in Monkton with her husband, a dog, cat, eight chickens, and two geese. She also loves spending time with her two children and three grandchildren, dancing, reading and being in the woods. A Master Gardener, Jenne also spends many hours in her gardens, growing vegetables, flowers and herbs, and watching the hummingbirds.
Jenne received her undergraduate degree in education from Johnson Sate, and her Masters in Education from the University of Vermont.
