Welcome! My name is Jennifer Cruce and I have been teaching at Coronado since August 2012. Currently, I teach resource 4th and 5th graders. I enjoy and look forward to helping your child be successful.
Defining Moment in Education
Since I was a child, I have been surrounded by educators. My mom is a 2nd grade teacher, my uncle is a high school P. E. teacher and coach, and many of my family members have coached sports. From a young age, I knew I wanted to help other people. It wasn't until I began college that I decided to pursue teaching. I originally wanted to teach elementary students, and decided to pursue a dual major in order to better meet the needs of all students. After both interning and student teaching, I realized that I wanted to work with students with disabilities. I have worked in special education since 2012!
Core Educational Belief
I believe that every child can learn!
