Mrs. Jenna Sagan—General Studies


I am a Southern California native, having graduated from Huntington Beach High School, UCLA’s School of Theater, Film and Television, and Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion’s Rhea Hirsch School of Education in Los Angeles. I received my Judaic Studies Certification and a General Studies California State Teaching Credential for Kindergarten-8th Grade in 2009, and since then have worked as an educator in the greater Los Angeles area in private Jewish Day Schools, public schools, synagogues, and charter schools. In total, I have spent eight wonderful years in classroom education! When not teaching, I enjoy traveling, watching the latest movies, swimming, and spending time with my wonderful husband Sean and our dog, Hobbes. For more information about my teaching philosophy, our second grade learning environment, curriculum, and expectations in our classroom, please explore our second Grade website www.sagansecondgrade.weebly. com . I look forward to being a partner in your child’s education!
