Mrs. Jennifer Jinnette

2021-2022 will be Jennifer Jinnette's 34th year of teaching. This is her sixth year at Brookwood Forest Elementary, the past thirteen of which have been at Mountain Brook Elementary.  Before being hired by MBS, she taught seven years in Germantown, Tennessee, and eight years in Brentwood, Tennessee.  Kindergarten is her love, but she has also taught first grade.
 
Jennifer is married and a mother of two boys.  Her hobbies are learning, reading, sewing, golfing with her boys, and playing with her dogs, Suzy, Drake and Bella and a cat named Pete Wilson.  On fall Saturdays, she can be found watching Alabama football games with her entire family -  a fourth generation tradition.
 
In Jennifer's classroom, customized learning is essential.  She uses the workshop approach to teach reading, writing, mathematics and play.  This approach allows her to work with individual children in these areas.  Her students also learn to be "Ranger Ready" by being the type of person who can live in the world empathically, optimistically, persistently, with flexibility, and resilience.  She wants your children to love school, become avid readers, write to change the world, use math in everyday life, and find the engineer in themselves to become creative in science, technology, and play.
