Hi! My name is Jennifer Abrecht and I have been working at Kemptown since 1996. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education from Duquesne University and my Master's Degree from Hood College. During my years at Kemptown, I have taught 4th, 5th, and 1st grade and have spent more than 10 years teaching Kindergarten. I love working with this age group and seeing the growth they make during the school year!
My husband and I live near Woodsboro on the farm where I grew up. We have two sons named Connor and Garrison. I love being a mom and spend many hours at their soccer and baseball events! I also love spending time with our chocolate lab, Nova. In the little bit of free time that I have, I like to read and scrapbook.
Some of my favorite children's books are:
The Mitten by Jan Brett
The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin Jr.
Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
The Giver by Lois Lowry
Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling
The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg
