Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Jennifer Klock and I have been a reading specialist at Tolbert for the past 4 years. Prior to becoming a reading specialist, I taught 1st grade here for 10 years and have been teaching for over 20 years. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Millersville University in Pennsylvania and a Master's degree in Elementary Reading from Shenandoah University. I am trained in Orton-Gillingham, which is a systematic and structured phonics program. I will continue my LETRS training this year as well.
As a Reading Specialist at Tolbert, I have the opportunity to work closely with students across grades to help them become skilled and confident readers. I work with and provide training to teachers in order to support our reading curriculum and the needs of the students in their classrooms.
I live in Leesburg with my husband Joe and our son Owen, who will be a junior at Heritage High School this year. I enjoy reading, walking, going to the beach and spending time with my family and friends when I am not in school.
I am looking forward to another great year with the Tolbert community!
