Jen Stern holds a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood and Special Education from the University of Delaware and a master’s degree in Literacy from Columbia University’s Teachers College. She started teaching at PS 8 in 2011, and immediately appreciated the supportiveness of the school community.

Jen’s favorite part of teaching is when a child realizes s/he has accomplished a task for the first time: “It is amazing when I catch children smiling at their work – whether it is the first time they have read a tricky word or created something exciting during centers – nothing makes me happier than making a child feel proud and motivated.”
