About Me

I'm Jennifer.  My most important role and job is being a mother to three cute munchkins.  Brayden, (aka Lovebug), is sweet and generous.  Ava-Rose, (aka Butterfly), is a good listener and great dancer.  They are each other's best friends mixed with a daily side of irritation and instigation.  Maya, (aka Panda Bear), is deliciously silly and quickly learning that following around, mimicking and playing with her older siblings is SUPER fun!  And here we are...

I obtain a MA in Education, BA in Psychology, and CA Teaching Credential.  In these fields, I have worked as an Elementary School Teacher, a Parent Educator Counselor, and have managed a non-profit program supporting adults with special needs.  My work has always focused on character education and social skills.  Therefore, teaching social skills, while creating a peaceful environment has always been a passion of mine.

I have consistently been drawn to design from a young age,  As an adult, I love planning parties, decorating my home, and creating various fun projects.  DELISH!  Therefore, I will do my best to beautify my materials, blog, parties, and whatever I can get my hands on, (while sharing tips along the way). 

I have found my passion.  I love creating and designing resources that may be used by teachers, school counselors, parents, social workers, speech therapists, and other specialists when working with children.  I love sharing parenting, teaching, classroom management, social skills, and character education tips with you.  I am one of the lucky ones.  I can truly say that I love what I do.  Thank you for letting me share my passion with you.

So why did I name my business Penelope's Portfolio when my name is Jennifer?  My beautiful shiny black SUV is named Penelope and she was very much involved in this calling of mine from the start.  You see, when I started this business, working out of my house wasn't always the most productive choice as time spent at home, was time spent with my family.  Therefore when care for my children wasn't available, Penelope and I would hit the road, head to a coffee shop or park, and get to work designing whatever we saw fit, while making educational materials along the way.  My children are now a little older, and I am therefore able to work out of my home office while they are in school.  But from the start, Penelope, played an important role in the birth of my business, and this is our Portfolio.

Welcome to it!
