• Hi!  My name is Jennifer Gibson, and I am the math coach for Unit 5.  This year is my 29th year in education.  I have been fortunate enough to teach in all grades from 3rd to 8th.  I have been part of Unit 5 since 2002, and I have taught at Glenn and Benjamin.  During my career, I have taught every grade 3rd-8th.
     
    I graduated from Augustana College in 1988 with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education with a concentration in English.  I earned my Master's Degree in special education from Illinois State University in 2010.
     
    I have taught throughout the northern part of Illinois in communities such as Big Rock, Peotone, and Erie.  These varied experiences have had a huge impact on my teaching.   I am excited in my new role as the Unit 5 math coach, and I hope to be able to support teachers and students in the best practices of mathematics.
