Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! 
We are going to have a year full of engaging experiences and community building in our 1st/2nd grade combo classroom. 

Hi my name is Jenifer X. Schwarz I have been teaching for 16 years. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education with a specialization in Early Childhood from Boise State Univesity. I have taught pre-first, first grade, 2nd grade, a second and third combo, and my all-time favorite was looping with my second graders up to third grade. My favorite subject to teach is math. I believe in teaching the whole child and that each child is capable of rising to the challenges set before them.
I have two adult children Zac, age 26 married to the most amazing daughter-in-law on the planet. I have one daughter, Alexis who is 22 and just graduated with honors from the University of Portland with a degree in civil engineering and a minor in mathematics. I was born in Orange County, California. I moved to Idaho when I was five and was raised in southeastern Idaho. I've lived in Los Angeles, Honolulu, and the greater Boston area. I love to travel, my most recent trip was to the Philippines with an organization that works with anti-human trafficking.
I am looking forward to and feel honored to have this opportunity to become a part of the Idaho Arts Charter family.
