Jennifer has enjoyed 24 years as an educator, dedicating the last 19 years to Corbett Preparatory School of IDS in Tampa, Florida - the Contentment Foundation’s International Model School. She is currently a First and Second Grade Multi-age Teacher and the Upper Primary Division Leader at Corbett Prep, in addition to being one of the original authors of the Four Pillars of Wellbeing Curriculum. Additionally, Jen co-created the Pre-K version of the Four Pillars with her team of collaborators in Tampa and Orlando.
Jennifer’s passion for bringing wellbeing and emotional intelligence to her classroom and schools around the world is driven by her personal relationship to the practices that she teaches. She is constantly inspired by the growing curiosity of her students to explore the nature of their emotions through the lenses of mindfulness, community, self-curiosity, and contentment and balance. Jennifer believes that the lessons and practices found within the Four Pillars of Wellbeing curriculum empower students to create sustained contentment and unconditional joy from within; gifts that every person deserves to begin cultivating at the youngest possible age.
