Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Jennifer Hains

I am so excited to be sharing my first year of teaching with you! After many years taking care of my family, I re-entered the workforce as a Teaching Assistant at Hunt Club in 2017.  I have worked with kids and students in many ways including teaching in a gifted program at Northwestern, substitute teaching, and various volunteer roles with my own kids. I have lived in Aurora with my husband and two sons since 2014. I have also lived in other Chicago suburbs, Massachusetts, Colorado, Minnesota, Tennessee, and I grew up in Iowa.

I attended St. Olaf College in Minnesota where I majored in History and French. I have a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from the University of Massachusetts and a Master’s of Science in Education at Northwestern University. As a teacher, I enjoy the challenge of finding ways to connect with each of my students personally and academically.
