Jenni enjoys building relationships with her students and sharing Jesus in her classroom every day.

“I truly love kids and especially enjoy getting to know them personally so I can walk alongside them when or if situations arise,” said Jenni. “Children are unique in their abilities to be empathetic and wise.”

Jenni first heard about Heritage after moving back to Indianapolis and looking for a private school option for her children. She has had two children graduate from Heritage–Abigail Craig ‘18, who is a senior at Purdue, and Aidan Craig ‘20, a freshman at Taylor. Her youngest is currently an HCS freshman.

Outside of work, Jenni loves spending time with her husband, Lance, going antiquing, organizing, and doing DIY projects. She also loves being with her dog, Sadie Mae, who she got during quarantine last year.
