Jen Henson, '16
Jen Henson of Newark, Ohio will graduate in May with a degree in Early Childhood Education. Jen learned about Muskingum through an alumna whose children she babysat; when she heard about Muskingum’s esteemed Education Department, she was convinced this was the place for her.
Jen is an active member of the F.A.D. sorority, where she is the new member educator.
Jen is currently student teaching in a third grade classroom at North Elementary in Cambridge, Ohio. She said, “It has been so rewarding to take everything I've learned about classroom management, assessments and the content I'm teaching and apply it. I also enjoy meeting up with other student teachers and sharing our experience.”
Jen has appreciated the faculty support she has received as a student. She says, “I never anticipated having people who care so much about how I do.”
