Jennifer and her husband Randy have been married for twenty-six years, and they have two children. Cory, her step son who is an air traffic controller, lives in Burlington, VT, and her son Tommy, who is a business analyst for a healthcare company, lives locally. Jennifer enjoys playing golf with her friends and family, traveling and curling.
Mrs. Bragg’s passion for working with young children stems from the joy and excitement they bring to the classroom. Her goal as an educator is to build strong relationships and to inspire a love of learning. Jennifer creates a classroom environment where students can feel comfortable expressing themselves, taking risks, making mistakes, and learning from them along the way. It is important for each child’s kindergarten experience to foster social and emotional skills and create long-lasting memories. Jennifer strives to teach her students to be active learners, creative thinkers, make good choices, and to be a kind person. She shares, “Kindergarten is a magical journey, and I work hard to create rituals, traditions, and celebrations that honor childhood and develop a child’s imagination.”
