Born and raised by a teacher for a mother in Western New York, Jennifer has been involved in the field of education most of her life. She has worked as an aid for children with special needs, directed a summer camp program, substitute taught; but, Jennifer loves teaching Pre-Kindergarten children best of all! The fact that Jennifer loves teaching is evident in her work, as Ms. Schiffmacher has received the honor of nomination three times for the Governor’s Award for Teacher of the Year. Jennifer has taught Pre-K since 1998 at 1511 Philadelphia Pike.
Ms. Schiffmacher graduated Cum Laude from SUNY College at Buffalo with a Bachelors of Science degree in Exceptional Education and a minor in Elementary Education. She dreams of going back to University for a Masters in Reading. Jennifer is CPR, First Aid and Medication certified. She has also received intensive training through the READ ASSIST Institute, where she was a volunteer.
When all of her boys are asleep, Jennifer enjoys reading, especially Alice Hoffman, Jodi Picoult and Anita Shreve books. She loves to cook, but does not bake! Jennifer adores the beach; Summer is her favorite season. She is currently hiking the Delaware Trail Challenge and can’t wait to hike at Cape Henlopen - a great excuse to visit the beach!
