    Riverside Rams! Jennifer Cramer Marden

    I am so happy to be a part of the Riverside CTE team as the Business Education/Information Technology teacher for Business Management, Business Law, Introduction to Cybersecurity, and Cybersecurity Software Operations classes.  I graduated from Mary Baldwin University in Staunton, VA where I earned a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Business Administration, with minors in Economics and Computer Information Systems.  My Masters in Business Administration was earned from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia.  Shenandoah University is where I earned my Virginia state teaching licensure with endorsements in Business Education and Marketing.  I have been teaching for the past eight years for LCPS.  I am also a former Adjunct Professor for the Kogod School of Business, Masters of Business Administration program, at American Univerisity in Washington, DC (go Eagles!)   

    Prior to teaching, I worked as an Information Technology systems engineer, consultant, developer, manager, and director for various consulting and telecommunications companies in northern Virginia, Kansas, and abroad (Malaysia, Philippines, South Korea, Chile, and Canada). After sixteen years in IT, I switched careers from doing business to teaching business!   

    My goal in education is to have all of my students learn many workplace readiness and business skills to enhance their academic and everyday lives. I want my students to excel in life skills: communication skills, people skills, and networking skills.  My students enjoy an innovative and enthusiastic class where learning is challenging and fun!   

    Please check ParentVue or Student Vue for grades and Google Classroom for lessons and assignments.  If you have any questions, please send me an email at Jennifer.Marden@lcps.org.  Go Riverside Rams!
