October 20, 2021
Read Jennifer's article in JSD's The Learning Professional. In the article Jennifer shares a self-reflection tool entitled Find Your Growth Opportunities.
While the concept of being a professional prominently features in teaching standards worldwide, as a profession we don’t devote much time to the study of what it takes to be one. In schools, the idea of defining, and then supporting, the emotional and psychological development required to be a professional remains on the periphery — it’s an expectation without support.

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.”
