Jenny studied history and Russian at Bowdoin College before spending a year teaching English to university students in Ulyanovsk, Russia. After spending the last five years in smaller communities, she is excited to begin her next adventure working and living in New York with Blue Engine. Along with her teaching experience in Russia, Jenny was a writing assistant at Bowdoin and a youth mentor at a local elementary school. She also spent one summer as a teaching fellow in her hometown of Pittsburgh with Breakthrough Collaborative, an experience that cemented her interest in teaching and working towards equity in education. She loves helping others find their own joy in writing and in the writing process. She is excited to spend the year learning as a BETA from her colleagues and students, and she can’t wait to annoy everyone with endless odd facts about Russian history.
