Language - ELD Teacher
My name is Jen Carney and I am an ELD teacher at CRES. Carbondale has been my home since I was 10 years old. I have enjoyed growing up in the same town where I teach as I have multiple generations of friends, students, and family connections in the community. I earned my BA in history at Colorado State University in 1992 and my Master’s degree from Adams State University in Curriculum and Assessment in 1996. I have been in education for over 20 years, starting as a high school history teacher at Roaring Fork High School (my alma mater!) and then teaching 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades as a classroom teacher. This is my fourth year as an ELD teacher. I live in Carbondale with my husband (Richard), son (Taylor 20), 3 dogs, and a cat. In my free time I enjoy hiking with my dogs, wakesurfing, and listening to live music.
