New Teacher Spotlight: Ms. Jennifer Tate


As a career changer, teaching means everything to me. After being inspired myself by an English teacher, I felt it a natural progression to finally contribute in a meaningful way by sharing my love of reading and literature—specifically, by engaging young minds not only in the classics, but also in culturally relevant and topical texts. Since my transformation from a career in Quality Assurance to one in Secondary Education, I have taught mostly 9th, 10th and 11th graders at Hartford's business themed academy, High School, Inc. My goal as a teacher has always been to give students a (literary) language so that they can effectively and objectively evaluate what they read both in fiction and non-fiction by recognizing, analyzing, and discussing patterns associated with literary devices, character development, themes, text structures, and author's craft. I am thrilled and excited to now have this opportunity here at Pathways Academy of Technology & Design.
