Jennifer Zentmeyer

(Board Vice President and Daily Living Skills Instructor)

I am the mother of a 17 year old daughter with autism. My daughter’s journey is the reason I returned to college as a wife and mother of 4 to become a special education teacher.  After watching her develop from a 4 year old child who did not talk into a very social and active young woman, I knew I wanted to be a part of other children’s journeys as well. As a parent of a child with special needs, I have the ability to build strong relationships with the families of my students. I understand the daily struggles and joys this experience can bring. I believe that all children are capable of learning, but not all children learn the same way. I chose to be a special education teacher because I want to help children reach their full potential. I have been working with students with intellectual disabilities and autism professionally for 6 years.  In 2021, I earned my Master’s Degree in Special Education: Moderate to Severe Disabilities.
