Jennifer McDonough


Jen McDonough is a first-grade teacher and literacy coach at the
Benjamin School in North Palm Beach, Florida. She has taught first grade
and kindergarten for ten years and has been a part of literacy training
for teachers for more than three years.

She received her bachelor's degree from Western Michigan University and her master's degree from Florida Atlantic University.

"Teaching found me," Jen says. "My goal was to work with kids because
I knew that I connected well with them and they responded to me in a
positive way. I studied speech pathology but had a hard time getting
into graduate school, so I started teaching and haven't looked back."
