Hey everyone, I’m Jennifer Borel and I am a middle school art teacher for a large school district in northeast Kansas. I received my Bachelor of Art Education and minor in Art History from the University of Kansas. A few years later I followed that up with a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction. I was an elementary art teacher for six years before switching to middle school. I love helping my students deepen their understanding of the art world while inspiring them to harness their creative skills. There is nothing better as a teacher to see your students understand and utilize the concepts they’ve learned even long after they leave the classroom.
When I’m not with my students, I enjoy spending time with my husband John and our wonderful families. I also love to snap photos from behind my camera, cook up recipes from the excessive amount of food network I watch, and travel the world whenever I get the chance. I’m flattered to be a member of the AOE team.
