Meet Jennifer Williams @JennWillTeach – ELA teacher/department chair

What’s your first and last name?

  • Jennifer Williams

What do you teach / what is your ‘title’ at school?

  • ELA teacher/department chair

How are you involved in education?

  • Currently, I teach senior English at an alternative school in OKC. I’m also finishing a master’s in curriculum. I live education. It’s my career, hobby, and focus.

What does your ideal school or classroom look like?

  • There is no “ideal” classroom. I work with the students I have and meet them where they are. Humans are imperfect, messy beings—at all stages of life. I simply want students to see growth and improvement while they’re with me. I want to give them a place to reclaim their unique voices and to understand what power they hold in their hands.

If you were to lead a session at Edcamp, what would it be about?
