Jennifer Shriver, 3rd Grade Teacher


My name is Jennifer Shriver AKA Ms. Shriver. I am excited to announce that I will be moving from the long-term substitute position to a permanent 3rd grade teacher here at Walter Woodward Elementary School. A little about me – I graduated from Stanislaus State University with a bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies with a concentration in Communication Studies. In my spare time I enjoy coaching my daughter’s Little League softball and soccer teams. I am looking forward to teaching multiplication and division this year. I love working at Woodward and I’m proud to be part of the Mustang Team!
