Mrs. Jennifer Black-Foltin

I have been teaching since 2005.  I previously taught in the Special Education and Literacy departments at East & West Leyden.  I am currently teaching in the Special Education Department at East Leyden.  In addition, I am an Interact sponsor, and the Class of 2024 sponsor.

In my free time, I enjoy reading, exercising, and spending time with my family.  I hope that my love for literature inspires my students to find something that they enjoy reading.
