Jen Teal is excited to be joining the West Hills community as PYP/MYP IB Teacher Leader after 17 years teaching high school English in Bloomfield Hills. Jen has a passion for the IB Programme as it provides opportunity for student-led inquiry, global citizenship, and a growth mindset. In her own classroom, Jen's passions centered around interdisciplinary teaching and learning, authentic assessments, and differentiation. She is thrilled to be joining a dynamic group of colleagues as they continue to grow as an IB World School. Jen and her husband Derrick live in West Bloomfield with their sons, Graham (8) and Russell (5), both proud students at Lone Pine Elementary.
