From freshly minted teachers to seasoned administrators, the educators who gathered to hear Jennifer Abrams speak at the Curriculum Breadfast at the SJCOE on January 13 were there to learn how to better work together with colleagues and parents of all ages.
“We’re going to talk about being generationally savvy,” said Abrams during a presentation based on her book “The Multigenerational Workplace: Communicate, Collaborate and Create Community”.

Praise for Jennifer
“Jennifer has so squarely hit the mark with our teacher-leaders that she is one of the few presenters that they are always requesting when professional development is the question. Here at the University of Chicago, this acclaim and recognition does not come easily! Jennifer has a way of presenting information that gets quickly to the heart of the matter. Her ability to read the true needs of the group, regardless of the original focus, has made her a favorite among the faculty here at the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools.”
