Harmening's Happenings

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!
My name is Mrs. Jennifer Harmening, and I am currently a special services teacher/reading specialist at Central Middle School. This is my 16th year teaching and my 13th year here at Central Middle School! I love being a Panther! Currently, I have a BA in Elementary Education, an MA in Multi-Categorical Specialized Instruction, and an MA in Reading/Reading Specialist. Teaching reading strategies in the content areas is my favorite thing to do as a special education teacher/reading specialist.  
One of my personal goals is to run 5.0 miles again without breaks; my educational goal is to complete my
Ph.D. in Special Education/Multi-Categorical Specialized Instruction.
In my free time, I volunteer at Sarah's Inn in Oak Park, enroll in recreational cooking courses whenever possible, and take my toddler to German class! 
My favorite place I have ever visited (so far) is Taos, New Mexico, and I love road trips!             
I absolutely love Chicago sports! Growing up and teaching on the South Side has fostered my love for the White Sox, but my heart will always remain with the Cubs! Go Cubbies! 
I am looking forward to an amazing school year!      
Please remember to check Google Classroom and PowerSchool for project and grade updates.
