Hello! My name is Jenna Reeh and I had “this idea” to start a blog where I could store all of my “brain children.” Thus “This Idea” was born. I graduated from Doane College in 2010 with my Bachelor’s in Elementary Education with a Middle Level endorsement. In subsequent years I earned my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Doane College. In the fall of 2017 I will earn my library endorsement through the University of Nebraska- Omaha.
It didn’t take me long to realize that I loved teaching crazy kids in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. Over seven years in the Elkhorn Public School district I taught reading and language arts across all grade levels. In 2016 I got the amazing opportunity to become the Media Specialist at Elkhorn Valley View Middle School. Now I’m leading from the library sharing my love of students, books, technology, and new teaching strategies. All of my ideas are my own or were inspired by amazing educators. I will do my best to give credit where credit is due and contain links to any resources I mention or was inspired by! Enjoy!
