Ms. Jennifer Thiessen
Hello Cardinals! I am so excited to be joining the Selden’s Landing community this school year as your Dean. My journey in LCPS started 7 years ago, where I was able to work in three different school communities, meeting incredible teachers, parents, and students along the way. I was a fourth grade teacher at Pinebrook ES, Cardinal Ridge ES, and Madison’s Trust ES.
I graduated from Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!), where I received a Master's in Curriculum & Instruction. I also completed my undergraduate work at VT and received a Bachelor's in Math and English. I earned my license in Educational Administration and Leadership from George Mason University, as well as National Board Certification a few years ago.
I was born and raised in Gainesville, Virginia along with my three brothers and sister. In my free time I enjoy being outside, watching college football and basketball, reading a good book, cooking, spending time with my husband and two stepsons, and traveling around the world. I have been all over the United States and have landed on 4 continents in total! Recently my travels took me to Sydney, Australia, Bangkok, Thailand, and the Dominican Republic. I hope to reach all 7 continents in the next few years! Be sure to share your travel experiences with me!
Please contact me if you need anything at all. I am here to support each and every member of our community and am looking forward to a fun, successful school year!
