Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Jennifer Porter
I am the library media specialist at The Wheatlands. I am very excited to be your child`s teacher in the learning resource center.
I started teaching at The Wheatlands during the 2002-2003 school year. I have taught first, second, third, and fourth grade, so I definitely have a vast understanding of curriculum and child development. I have a love for teaching because I am a lifelong learner.
In 2002, I graduated from North Central College, in Naperville, Ill., with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. In 2005, I graduated from Rockford College, in Rockford, Ill., with a master’s degree. Finally in 2013, I completed my endorsement in educational technology from Aurora University, in Aurora, Ill.
I am passionate about my job and being able to share great books with students. My focus is to foster a love of reading in my students and to help them develop technology skills and research strategies.
I look forward to a fabulous time this year in the LRC!!
