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!

Having gone through a Hebrew Academy education from Preschool through 8th grade, I was delighted to move back to Southern California to continue here as a teacher. I live in Long Beach with my wife Chami and our lively (and lovely) children. I have been teaching here for more than a decade, many of those at the 3rd grade level. I'm excited to be teaching 2nd grade and I'm looking forward to watching the progress our children make during the pivotal 2nd grade year.

When I'm not teaching, I have the pleasure of directing Silver Gan Israel Day Camp.

Second grade is such a formative year in the growth and education of a child. My passion is to provide a warm learning environment where the children will be imbued with a love of G-D, Torah and their fellow man. Please feel free to call with any questions or inquiries! I am delighted to be a partner with you in your child's education!
