JENNY CUTLER

Instructor

 

Jenny Cutler graduated in 2005 with a B.A. in Education, and in 2012 with a Master’s Degree in Multicultural Education, both from Eastern University.  Jenny taught in both private and public schools until she had her first child and decided to stay home with him.  She ran a tutoring business during her first few years as a stay at home parent, but found teaching online to be an ideal fit for her and she made the switch in 2014. Besides teaching online, Jenny serves as the children’s ministry director at her church and is a volunteer teacher at the local homeschool co-op her children attend.

Jenny is passionate about seeing students develop a love of literature, as she believes that good books can teach both critical thinking and compassion towards others. She is a voracious reader herself and especially loves seeing students that are not naturally bookworms connect deeply with a work they didn’t expect.

Jenny lives on an orchard in rural Michigan with her husband, three children, flock of chickens, mischievous goats, and lazy old corgi. When she’s not homeschooling her children or teaching online, she can be found outdoors with her critters or in the garden, trying out a new recipe, or with her nose in a book.

HE IS REALLY ENJOYING THE CLASS

He really is enjoying the class and I can tell that he is thinking of what he might like to become or something he might like to pursue in college. So I am very excited to watch him as just a couple of nights ago as he was reading his folktales book, he said, 'Mom, you should read this one, it's really good.

MRS. CUTLER LOVED HER STUDENTS

Mrs. Cutler loved her students! This fact, along with her love and knowledge of literature and the English language, were her strengths. She held the bar high in this class, but I am one who appreciates this. My daughter was challenged, but inspired to reach for great heights by Mrs. Cutler. Through much work and perseverance, my daughter proved to herself that she could jump over that bar. Thank you, Mrs. Cutler, it was an amazing class this year.
