Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Jenn Asong and this is my first year here at Cooper. I am so excited to be teaching 6th grade!
I received my Masters of Elementary Education from the University of Michigan this past year. I did my student teaching in a 4th grade classroom in Ann Arbor and also spent 2 summers with rising 3rd graders as a volunteer teacher in an ESL program. Prior to my pursuit of becoming a teacher, I was a foster care case manager. I've always wanted to work with children and families and eventually I decided that the way I wanted to do so was through education rather than social work. So here I am! My vision as a teacher is to empower my students to see their strengths and gifts so they can persist in the face of challenges and in turn empower others.
I currently live in Ann Arbor and in my free time I enjoy painting, grabbing some coffee/a meal with friends, cleaning (it's oddly satisfying), and catching up on my tv shows. I love getting to know people so I am really looking forward to meeting and spending this 2019-20 school year with you all!
If you ever have any questions, comments/concerns, or random things to share, please don't hesitate to contact me. Here's to an amazing year full of learning, growing, and building relationships together!
