Director, Methodist Day School
Jennifer cannot remember not wanting to be a teacher. She joined the staff of FUMC as the Director of the Methodist Day School in 1997 after teaching early childhood and Kindergarten for several years. She earned a BS in Human Development and Family Studies from the University of Houston and holds a Lifetime Texas Teacher Certification in Early and Elementary Education: Pre-K through 6th grade. She is a Licensed Director through the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.
She met her husband, Jim, at Lamar University during her first week of college and married him two years later. Their children, Daniel and Mollie, were raised in FUMCMC. Both have “left the nest,â€ each becoming Longhorns which turned Jennifer into a crazy t-shirt fan! She and Jim love “day-trippin'” and are in constant pursuit of the best BBQ in Texas.
