Jennifer Bissonnette, USA, Middle Grades, 4-8, Language Arts
I’m a middle school teacher who loves to read and teach reading. Currently, I teach 6th grade Language Arts in Boise, Idaho. Before that, I taught 1st and 3rd grades at a public arts magnet school in Chattanooga, TN.
I’ve also had the honor of collaborating with teachers throughout the East Coast as a consultant with the National Paideia Center at the University of North Carolina. I am passionate about public education and making a difference in kids’ lives.
I’m always focused on what I can do to get kids into books and to love reading as much as I do. When I’m not teaching or reading, I am gardening, hiking, testing new recipes, going to the movies, enjoying a long afternoon nap, or spending time with my husband. Life is good!
