Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Jenny Hahn and I am a 6th grade English teacher at Eagle Ridge. I hold a BA in Education and a MEd in the Integration of Technology in Schools. This is my third year teaching in LCPS, but my eleventh year overall. Previously I taught for a private school system in Maryland, followed by five years teaching in Fairfax County Public Schools. There, I taught 7th Grade English and Read180. Additionally, I was the 7th grade English team leader and the English Department Co-Chair.
As an educator I teach my students to make their learning personal; to find some way to apply the content curriculum to their lives. I am also a promoter of problem based learning to add enriching and authentic experiences to the English content. More so, I am an avid user of technology and strongly encourage students to use their devices to support their learning, work habits, and organization.
On a personal note, my family moved to the Ashburn area not too long ago. My husband and I have two wonderful daughters; ages four and seven, as well as one cat and a dog. Outside of school I enjoy baking and being outdoors. I read as often as I can and welcome any book suggestions you may have.
