Jenna Kamp earned her Bachelors in English at Binghamton University in 1993, and her Masters in Teaching from Seattle University in 1999. After a two-year stint at a suburban public high school north of Seattle, Washington, she and her family moved to Los Angeles, California.
Jenna has over 20 years of classroom teaching experience and is a results-oriented collaborative teacher leader. She has worked successfully with students at every secondary grade level and skill proficiency, including English Learners, students with Individual Educational Plans, Gifted and Talented students, at-risk learners, struggling readers, and neuro-diverse learners schoolwide.
She is also an educational innovator. Jenna has co-founded two charter schools since coming to California; the first in the Arts Colony of Pomona, and the second in the Pico-Union area of Los Angeles. Both schools are driven by mission statements focused on developing career and college-ready graduates capable of achieving their dreams armed with the strong academic and life skills they learned through high school.
As a teacher-leader, Jenna provides instructional coaching and professional development workshops for teachers on classroom management, student engagement and motivation, critical thinking, content and disciplinary literacy, collaboration practices, synchronous and asynchronous technology integration, and project-based and design-based learning.
“I love working with teachers, because they keep me on my toes so that we can all rise to be our best selves for the students in our classrooms,” Kamp says. “There is no greater purpose.”
“Jenna is a very resourceful veteran teacher and has helped me to develop skills in classroom management and student engagement and to continually grow as a professional educator. Five stars. Definitely would recommend her workshops!”
