Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Jennifer Keicher
I am excited to join the Murphy Junior High School staff. The 2019-2020 school year will be my sixth year in District 308. My first four years I spent teaching 7th and 8th grade English language arts at Traughber Junior High and the 2018-2019 school year I taught sophomore and junior English at Oswego East.
Prior to becoming an educator, I worked in retail and restaurant management.
I attended Northern Illinois University (NIU) where I received my bachelor’s degree in English with an additional endorsement in social studies. In 2010 I returned to NIU to obtain my master's degree in literacy education and am a certified reading specialist.
Partial credit for my career in education goes to the wonderful supportive teachers I had in 8th grade. They inspired and motivated me all while making learning fun. I hope to do the same for my students.
