Greetings! My name is Jenna Padilla, and I'm honored to be part of the Justice Page Middle School community. I teach sixth-grade English language arts and ELA topics.
I have been teaching language arts, English as a second language, and reading for over ten years. My career in education began when I moved overseas to teach English to non-native speakers in the Czech Republic, Japan, Vietnam, and Honduras. Since returning to the midwest, I've continued my journey in education by teaching secondary ELA and completing a master's degree in literacy education at Saint Mary's University.
In my free time, I like to read, travel, cook, spend time outdoors, or dabble in anything creative. I enjoy spending time with family, friends, and most of all, my two daughters.
I'm looking forward to getting to know students and supporting them in developing as readers, writers, and thinkers. If you would like to get in touch with me, please feel free to send me an email.
