B.F.A., New York University
Jen Rose joined the Morristown-Beard School faculty in 2014 with over fifteen years experience teaching math to students in elementary and middle schools, with additional experience in the fields of early education. She has taught at several schools in New Jersey, including The Peck School in Morristown, Grace Wilday Junior High School in Roselle, and Far Hills Country Day School in Far Hills. In 2010, Jen was named Teacher of the Year at Grace Wilday, and in 2015, she was a New Jersey finalist for the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching.
Jen, a member of the Middle School Admin team, possesses a strong background in curriculum design, with special expertise in Universal Design for Learning, a cutting-edge, scientifically grounded approach to educational inclusivity and flexibility. She has a special interest in the integration of technology in the classroom, and has spoken on this important academic topic, regionally and nationally.
Jen earned a Master’s degree in Instruction and Curriculum from the Nathan Weiss Graduate College at Kean University. Prior to this graduation education, she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Drama from New York University. Jen’s background in the performing arts heavily informs her approach to teaching Math, and she is a strong proponent of STEAM education, fully supporting the inclusion of the Arts with the other four disciplines. The Independent Study she offers in the Upper School, "Acting Techniques and Scene Study", also clearly draws from that same experience as a performing arts professional and proud member of SAG/AFTRA and AEA.
Beyond the classroom walls, Jen can be found coaching the Middle School boys and girls tennis teams alongside fellow Middle School teacher Rob Mead.
