The Mission of Jane Addams High School is to increase each scholar's critical thinking skills, promote personal responsibility, and self-sufficiency.

My name is Bridget Driscoll; I was born and raised in Tinley Park, IL, a south suburb of Chicago, where I attended Victor J. Andrew High school. I earned my bachelors in English and Secondary education at Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin where I ran Cross Country and Track and Field. Outside of school I enjoy running, traveling, and playing with my dog, Scout.

This is my first year at JAHS, but my third year teaching, and I am thrilled to be apart of the team!
