Jennifer Woods received her Ph.D. through Clemson University in the area of Curriculum and Instruction, specializing in Special Education. She has 11 years of public K-12 experience in the classroom as well as a building- and district-level administrator. As a child, she always knew she wanted to be in education and recalls lining up her stuffed animals in her room as her students. She even made her mother make them lunch! When Woods is not teaching, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, especially her two children. They like to go four-wheeling, read books, go on adventures and play practical jokes on one another. Woods likes being outdoors and enjoys camping, kayaking and fishing.
