Jean earned her Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary Education from Southern Illinois University, where she played on the women’s golf team. She and her husband, Rob, have three grown sons and two goofy boxers. Jean has many years of experience working with children of various ages and in a variety of settings – from preschool and children’s ministries, to camps and elementary schools. She has valuable experience gained from working in an elementary public school modeled after Dr. William Glasser’s Choice Theory. This theory focuses on creating a positive learning environment by seeking to meet the basic needs of all children. Quality time to Jean is burgers on the grill and a rousing game of bags with her family.
