Special Education Teacher
New Bedford Public Schools
Jennifer Arenson Yaeger's Foundations of Reading workshop saved my career as a Massachusetts educator. It took me four years to pass the Foundations of Reading exam. I tried almost every single Foundations of Reading workshop across Massachusetts, but continued to fail, leaving me feeling hopeless. I registered for her workshop at Umass/Boston. Jennifer broke down all the concepts of the exam, gave me the tools necessary to finally pass this exam and obtain my preliminary license. If you are feeling hopeless and unable to pass this exam, don't quit! You just need to learn how to take the exam, and Jennifer provided that and even more for me!
Grade 2 Teacher
Plymouth Public Schools
I have known Jen over ten years, first as a college professor and later as my school’s literacy coach. She has had a huge impact on my growth as a classroom teacher. When you work with Jen, you walk away with a firm grasp on where you can grow, as well as authentic positive feedback on what you have done well. Jen is someone I look forward to collaborating with throughout my teaching career.
