Jenn Jordan She/Her/Autistic

Jenn has been establishing and teaching in Montessori secondary programs since 2003. She has earned credentials in secondary education from Ohio State University, University of Cambridge, American Montessori Association and Association Montessori International. But it all started when her mom enrolled 3-year-old Jenn in a Montessori program at St. Joseph Montessori School here in Columbus, Ohio. Bringing high-quality secondary Montessori education back to her hometown has become her life's obsession.
