My name is Jen Campen and I am the Project Arrow teacher at Cowlishaw Elementary School. This is my 9th year of teaching and my 8th year teaching Project Arrow. I am passionate about this program and the tremendous opportunities it provides for our academically talented learners. I previously taught at Graham Elementary and Welch Elementary schools. I am thrilled to be apart of a team of dedicated families and hardworking students here at Cowlishaw!
I am a graduate of Indian Prairie School District #204. I attended Steck Elementary, Granger Middle School, and Waubonsie Valley High School - Go Warriors! I received my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education with a minor in English from Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin. In December of 2015, I graduated from Concordia University in Chicago with a Master's Degree in Differentiated Instruction.
In addition to teaching, I love spending time with my family. My husband, Jeff, is a Software Engineer for a video game developer in Chicago. We have two crazy(!) but lovable rescue pups, Betsy, a Yorkshire Terrier, and Louie, a Chihuahua-Mix . I enjoy traveling to new destinations, cooking for our family and friends, and relaxing with a good book on our deck.
Thank you for stopping by. I look forward to another excellent school year!
