6th Grade Instructional Assistant
Jennifer Harrison is an Instructional Assistant in the 6th grade, but teaching hasn’t always been a career on her radar. After graduating from Hanover College with a degree in math she worked as an accountant then took a break to start a family—she’s always had a love for kids.
“You would think that teaching would’ve been the next logical step,” Harrison says, “However, I am such an introvert that I could never picture myself teaching in front of a classroom!”
It was only after enrolling her kids in Heritage that the prospect of teaching came into focus. “I knew immediately that HCS was special and I wanted to be a part of that.” In 2009 she started working as an ABCare assistant and moved to work with 6th graders nearly 3 years ago.
Jennifer has been married to her husband, Rick, for 25 years this year. Her daughter Megan (class of 2016) is now attending Taylor University and daughter Mallory is a freshman at Heritage this year.
