My name is Jennifer Wood. I am a mom of three incredible teenagers, and I have been a teacher for over twenty years. I am currently teaching middle school English to at an independent school in San Rafael, CA. I studied literature and rhetoric at The University of Virginia, where I first fell in love with words. After teaching for one year to a class of 35 first graders, I realized I had a lot more to learn, so I went to Teacher’s College to get my masters degree in curriculum and teaching. One magical summer, I took Lucy Calkins’ Writing Institute, and I realized that I love to teach reading and writing! Since then, I have been fortunate to teach first, second, third, fifth, seventh, and eighth grades. I am always inspired by new ideas,and I have recently discovered professional mentor texts, twitter chats, and blogs that have inspired me to try new things in my classroom every day!
