Jennifer earned a Bachelor of Science in Education from Millersville University of Pennsylvania and Post Baccalaureate Certification in Special Education from Millersville Universities’ College of Graduate and Professional Studies.  Jennifer resides in Edina, Minnesota with her husband and two teenage children. When she is not at teaching, she enjoys being with her family, traveling, and watching her children participate in sports.
 Her goals as a teacher include; making sure to reach each child where they are, and helping them to grow both socially and academically, create a nurturing, organized classroom community where every student feels safe to take risks in their learning, and treat every member of our classroom with respect. She also believes it is important to build a partnership with each child’s family, because together we all can make a difference!

PaigeMerwin-2017

Hi, my name is Paige Merwin, and I am excited to return to Tesfa for a second year! I graduated from the College of Saint Benedict with a degree in Elementary Education and minor in music in 2017. Prior to teaching at Tesfa, I spent a year in Taiwan as a Fulbright Scholar teaching English to 4th, 5th, and 6thgrade students, learning Chinese, and discovering the fascinations of a new-to-me culture. I am excited to continue to explore different ideas and cultures in our fifth-grade community this year. I believe everyone deserves a great education, and I want to help all students become the best “them” they can be. Besides teaching, I love playing piano, doing theater, swing dancing, cooking, kayaking, hiking, camping, traveling to new places, and spending time with my family. I can’t wait to see what adventures this year will bring as we learn and grow together!
