Boland, Jeanne

(she/her) 7th grade English Language Arts/ELA

This is my 6th year at JAMS and 21st year teaching middle school. I'd rather spend time outdoors than inside, love all things water-related (swimming, kayaking, beachcombing, storm chasing, sunset watching...), and have two dogs who mean the world to me. One of my goals as an ELA teacher is to grow every student's confidence as a writer and help them recognize the power in their voice.
