My name is Jennifer Glaze and I am from Northeast Philadelphia. I was born and raised in the Mayfair section and attended St. Timothy Grade School and St. Hubert High School. I went to Beaver College/Arcadia University and graduated in 2002 with my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education. After working as a first grade teacher for a few years, I realized that I wanted to further my own education to help meet the needs of my students. I headed back to Arcadia and graduated with my masters in reading and became a reading specialist in 2007. I have been teaching for fifteen years and have experience in both first and third grades. I am very excited to be here at Franklin Towne and look forward to working with my new students!
