If you have met Peanut or Walnut then you've been in the awesome classroom of Mrs. Nachazel! Mrs. Nachazel brings real life application in her teaching from bringing the zoo to her classroom to doing experiments all over campus!
Mrs. Jenna Nachazel - CP Sciences
BIO: "I grew up in Lombard, IL-a western suburb of Chicago. I came to Michigan to go to MSU where I graduated with a B.S in Zoology. After working in a zoo, a wildlife rehabilitation facility, and a doggy daycare, I decided to go back to school to become a teacher. I started back at MSU and just graduated with my Master's in Teaching and Curriculum this summer.
I did my student teaching in the Jackson area and heard many things about JPEC while interning. Doc B also happened to be in the same program that I was in at MSU and he told me a lot of really awesome things about working at JPEC, so when there was an opening in the science department I was very excited to be considered. The rest is history!"
How many years of teaching experience do you have? "This is my second year of teaching"
What is your favorite thing to do? "I love spending quality time with my husband and my dogs playing in our backyard or going on an adventure!"
What's your favorite quote/saying and why? "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work" -Thomas Edison
"I love this quote because this is what science is all about-trying and trying again to find a solution or an answer to a question. You have never failed at a science experiment or engineering challenge-you have just eliminated one more way that won't get you what you want and are one step closer to finding what you need."
If you could do any job for one day, what would you do? "I would be the zoo keeper who gets to play with the panda cubs!"
Favorite JPEC memory? "Going to the Potter Park Zoo with Zoology class last year-even though it rained most of the day"
Something that might surprise us about you? "I can't whistle"
Thank you Mrs. Nachazel for making learning interesting and applicable! All students love your class and can't wait to go on your next classroom adventure! Talk with Mrs. Nachazel about animals (as she was a zoo keeper!) and maybe you can even teach her to whistle! ... See MoreSee Less
