Ms. Jen Kravitz

Officially a "flat lander," I grew up in Guilford, CT and went to college at Wesleyan University.  At Wesleyan, I majored in history and played varsity lacrosse for four years.  After I graduated, I returned to teach at my old high school, Hopkins School, in New Haven, CT.  At Hopkins, I taught 8th grade history (Russian and Chinese history), Ancient and Medieval European history, Modern European History, Civics, and a Soviet History elective.  I also coached lacrosse (JV and Varsity), JV field hockey, and JV soccer.  While at Hopkins, I got my M.A. in History from Yale University.  

In 2005, I moved to Vermont and became certified to teach in Vermont public schools.  From 2006-2014, I taught social studies at Rutland High School.  There I taught Ancient and Medieval World History, Modern World History, Civics and Economics as well as short term classes in Harry Potter, Spartan racing, trail running, and Soviet history.  I also coached the JV and Varsity lacrosse teams for six years.  I was a recipient of the Vermont ASCD Promising Educator Award in 2010 and was awarded a Rowland Fellowship in 2012 to establish a Global Studies concentration at Rutland High School.  While at Rutland, I earned my M.Ed. in Education Leadership at the Woodruff Institute at Castleton University.

I live in Middlebury with my husband Erik, two daughters - Kaisa and Maëlle, and two dogs - Nieve and Chili.  I love to play with my kids, garden with them, read lots of books on many different topics, runSave, practice yoga, and Nordic ski.
