About Jen

Jen Wieber graduated with a degree in Education in 2000. She's taught in the elementary school classroom as a certified teacher, specialized in multi-age classrooms, taught math to 6th grade middle school students, as well as numerous teacher training seminars, and braved the passenger seat as a Driver's Education Instructor.

These days, Jen is the teacher to her 3 daughters at home, helping them pursue their educational dreams and to become responsible, compassionate, contributing members of society, and to remember to change their socks at least twice a month. Each week, Jen also teaches writing to upper elementary and high school students in a Home School Co-op. All this is made possible by a supportive, hard-working husband, and less possibly, by a dog named Chester.
