Jenn Buonincontri believes that every person that crosses her path has something to teach her and vice versa. Learning is life-long, and she embraces the opportunity to share with others her love of learning while challenging those around her to expand their understanding. Jenn graduated from Hartwick College with a B.A. in Psychology in 1998 and continued on to her first M.A. in Psychology focusing on Statistics and Neuropsychology in 1999. From there, she proceeded to the City University of New York and studied Developmental Psychology. Earning another M.A. in Developmental Psychology and a Masters in the Philosophy of Psychology in 2002, she then transitioned from her own studies to teaching others.
In her career, Jenn has taught teachers and worked with 3-5 year old children diagnosed with autism.
For the last seven years, she has been homeschooling her three children. Creating a space for her children to grow, question, and learn how to learn while maintaining a strong moral compass is by far her greatest accomplishment.
When she is not reading, cooking, or baking, she is spending time in the outdoors camping, fishing, and hiking with her three children and husband, Greg. She and Greg whole-heartedly believe that next to homeschooling, the best thing they can do for their children is to pass down survival skills and a true love of God’s creation. There is nothing more invigorating than being at the top of a summit and experiencing first-hand the awe-inspiring majesty of the Lord’s creation.
