Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Jenn Cizdziel (pronounced "Cheese-gel"). I was born in Buffalo, New York, and moved to Texas when I was four. Growing up I was a member of a competitive dance troupe and played/marched the sousaphone (tuba) in high school. I earned Associates Degrees in both Dance and Interdisciplinary Studies from Tyler Junior College before receiving my Bachelor of Science in Elementary/Early Childhood Education from the University of North Texas. This will be my fourteenth-year teaching, the last seven have been in fourth grade. The love for learning and teaching displayed by my own elementary teachers was what inspired me to become a teacher. I cannot imagine doing anything else. I want to share my enthusiasm and passion for learning with my students and help them discover their talents.
Spending time with friends and family, swimming, and going out to eat are activities I enjoy when I am not teaching. I also love to catch up on my favorite TV shows and book series.
