Nature Preschool Teacher
Primary Location: Rocky River Nature Center
Jen joined the Cleveland Metroparks staff in June 2018. She is a graduate of The Ohio State University where she received her Bachelors and Masters degrees in Elementary Education. When her daughter Zoe was in preschool she joined the staff at Avon Montessori School where she was in charge of their Outdoor Classroom. She was able to share her love of nature while gardening with the children and teaching them to care for the goat and chickens at the school. During her time there she received her Montessori Early Childhood Credential. Jen loves being a part of the Cleveland Metroparks Nature Preschool where she can be outside with the kids rain or shine. Outside of school she enjoys spending time with her family at her grandparents' farm where her love of nature first began.
