Having had a passion for education since she was young, Jenise joins us ready to bring her excitement for the social sciences to our students. She is available to teach courses in History and Geography, as well as work with elementary aged students on their general math and language arts skills. Jenise comes to us after having moved around the country with her husband during his military service, where she has had an opportunity to work with students aged 2-18. She has been a preschool teacher, a tutor, a Girl Scout Troop Leader, and worked in literacy and after school programs, as well as acting as a current volunteer at a local elementary school. She considers herself a “Caligonian”; while she was born here in Southern California, she moved to Oregon at age seven, but traveled back for summers and Christmases. She considers both states home and is grateful for such an adventurous childhood. Jenise graduated from the University of Oregon (Go Ducks!) with a BA in History and Geography and is also a trained facilitator. Most recently, Jenise has been a stay at home mom, where she has had a wonderful time going to museums, zoos, and parks with her young sons; as they grow older, she is excited to share her love of education with more students. She is really looking forward to working with your students and can’t wait to meet them!
