Hi, my name is Jen Austin. I have been teaching at Dartmouth for 27 years, and currently, I am teaching 8th grade Language Arts on the Barracuda Team.
I have a BA degree in Liberal Studies with a minor in English, and I have an MA in Instructional Technology. Both of my degrees were earned at San Jose State University. Recently, I have completed my preliminary Administrator Credential through the Santa Clara Office of Education. I am also qualified to teach Fine Arts.
During my time here at Dartmouth, I have taught all of the grade levels. I have taught 6th-grade social studies, math and language arts and physical education. In 7th grade, I have taught a variety of electives: technology, filmmaking, Skills for Adolescences, art, and physical education. In 8th grade, I have spent my time teaching Language Arts, intervention, and art.
Outside of the classroom, I spent 19 years coaching boys and girls sports; focusing on basketball, volleyball, cross-country and track. As of late, I spend time tutoring students who need extra individual help.
In my free time, I read and play games, interact with my dog, Venus, enjoy time with my family, friends, and travel.
The Dartmouth community is very special to me and a huge part of my life.
