About the instructor

Jenny Theriault’s love of teaching began over 20 years ago. While her undergraduate and graduate degrees focused on traditional classroom teaching, her career has expanded into lifelong learning skills. From her days in a classroom teaching academically struggling youth, to her time helping returning adults earn their GEDs, to her work as a community college instructor, she has personally witnessed that all learners must master learning skills before they can ever achieve classroom success. As a parent of school age children, she is keenly aware of what a struggle it can be to ensure that children engage in academic skills over the summer. This is why she has created her “Summer Slide Workshops” and “MS3 - Middle School Success Series.” Jenny firmly believes in the value of developing the skills necessary to succeed and be better prepared to start the school year off right!
