J.Kaufenberg


My name is Jennifer Kaufenberg, middle school and high school language arts teacher at a rural school in the great Northwoods of Minnesota. Currently, I am teaching 7, 8, 9/10, 11/12 grade language arts classes and a CEP College Writing II course. Education has been a constant part of my life, as a teacher, parent, and lifelong learner. Over the course of the next three semesters, I will be finishing the last three classes required for my MS in Special Education as well as finishing 18 credits of Graduate English courses. The English credits will provide me with the requirements needed to continue to teach college level classes.

Learning Philosophy

Cooperative learning opportunities are an essential part of the modern world of education. Technology integration is required in every classroom at every age level in order to keep academics connected to students. It is essential to understand, that we learn more working with each other than we can ever learn on our own.

Teaching Philosophy

Teaching is an opportunity to inspire and empower students by challenging them to participate directly and indirectly with the subject matter. Allowing students the opportunity to look outside the standard boundaries of learning and see the knowledge that can be obtained beyond the textbook. Teaching is learning in a classroom environment that is safe and secure and gives students the chance to take responsibility for their own learning. Inspiring students to learn together by cultivating curiosity and providing opportunities that develop new relationships is essential to a quality-learning environment. Teaching and learning begins and ends with respect; respect for diverse views and experiences, as well as respect for others and yourself.
