Hello! My name is Jessica Stengel! I am a native Michigander (born and raised in Michigan). I graduated from Baker College with a degree in American Sign Language. My original plan was to become an ASL interpreter, but my plans quickly changed. I continued on in my education to receive my teaching certificate. If I were to go back, I would do it all over again! Teaching is my passion! I have seven years of teaching experience: three years teaching in a special education setting and four years teaching American Sign Language. Seeing my students grow is my favorite part of teaching! My goal is to ensure that learning is fun! You can learn and have fun at the same time. Along with teaching, my husband and I are heavily involved in our church. In my free time, I enjoy camping, traveling, reading, and photography. We have one cat named Nala! I can’t wait to work with you! Hope to see you soon!
