Hello! My name is Jennifer Licklider and I am excited to be teaching 8th grade Physical Science and 7th grade Life Science. I have been teaching for 19 years. 17 of those 19 years have been in middle school, teaching grades 6-8 all core subjects. Of all the various subjects I've taught over those 19 years, science is my favorite subject because it is based on facts. Science provides opportunities for discovery and is a part of our daily lives! I have a love of learning and a belief in the power of knowledge that was instilled in me at a young age by my dad. My hope is to convey that through enjoyable learning experiences.
My education includes: Bachelor of Arts in Education from Austin Peay State University, Clarksville, Tennessee; Master's Degree in Education from Baker University, Kansas City, Kansas; Educational Specialist in Leadership from Lincoln Memorial University, Harrogate, Tennessee. I served in the Army Reserve at a young age. My certifications include grades 4-8 all subjects, gifted, and leadership.
I am recently married, and my family includes two daughters ages 21 & 17, a 12 year old son, and a 6 year old stepson. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, exercising, spending time with my kids, and continuing my education.
As a teacher I try to be firm but fair and provide a positive learning environment where all students can succeed. Success in my class is a team effort between the teacher, parent/guardian, and the student. I look forward to getting to know each of my students and their families for a successful 2019-2020 school year!
