Total Years in Education - 13 years

In her own words . . .

“My reward comes when my students come to school with a sense of self-worth and confidence. . . . As their year progresses, they become more confident and mature. These little ones that walk in giggling with excitement and a little apprehension, walk out in June with a skip in their step and a bit wiser.”

In the words of others . . .

“Jennifer has poise with both children and parents that invite dialogue and learning. I have always admired her patience. In a community where children and parents seem rushed, she is always in control of the moment. To this day, our girls frequently quote Ms. Deaton and we are always so excited to see her in the halls. It is hard to describe the immense positive impact she has had on both of our girls, both educationally and personally.” 
- Camille Stern, Wilchester Elementary Parent

“She is the ‘real deal,’ the elder eagle, the teacher you want your own children to have every single year! Not only does she teach our young people the academics they need to know in this world, but she teaches them how to ‘be’ in this world by what she models – kindness, caring, loving, encouragement and dedication.”
