Jen Wakefield


Jen Wakefield

Jen grew up in the Bay Area and has been teaching here for 30 years. She’s taught most grades, from pre-school through college, but thinks middle-schoolers are the most fun. Jen especially loves supporting students in rediscovering the beauty and joy in math, learning to write from our unique perspectives, finding stories we can immerse ourselves in and making connections with people and communities from the past. Jen enjoys teas from around the world, spends as much time as possible with her many dogs and lives for a good book!
