Community Member of the Week: Jennifer Allen

Jennifer is a 5th grade teacher in North Callaway School District, MO. She has been using Discovery Education resources for a couple of years. She shared “ We received Chromebooks this year in our classroom and I use them to teach science using the Science TechBook.  My kids love reading the articles, watching the videos and doing the virtual labs.  I have also used Discovery this year to show my students how to create board builders.  They have successfully made boards about chemical elements, Presidents and The American Revolution.  I love the fact that they can go home and show their parents what they are learning and creating on Discovery Education.”

When you’re not working where are we most likely to find you?20150707_174909
When I am not working you can find me at the gym or if it is nice outside you can find me walking my dog at the park.  In the summertime I travel all over Missouri with my daughter participating in 5k’s.
I also love traveling up to Maryville Missouri during the year to see my daughter who attends Northwest Missouri State University.

What is one of your favorite ways to use Discovery Education?

I love using the Science Techbook!
How do you start your day?

I work the before school program so I am here before anyone else at 6:30.  I get to greet the kids and walk 2 miles around the gym floor while they play.

What brings you joy?

Spending time with my family

How can others connect with you?
