Hope you are enjoying the snow days!
We are thrilled to welcome Jinnea-Brianne Hebert to our GATE CITY team. Jinnea will be taking on some of Emily’s hours and duties as Emily focuses more on her teaching job. Jinnea’s knowledge and experience makes her a great asset to our team. Those of you who were at UNHM last summer may recognize her as one of the instructors in the adult ESOL Summer Program. In addition, Jinnea is a recent graduate from the UNH Manchester campus. She has her Bachelor’s of Art in Psychology with a double minor in Interpersonal Communications and Deaf Studies. She took four semesters of American Sign Language while attending UNHM. Her experience with ESOL students include four years as a writing tutor, two years instructing the UNHM Summer ESOL Program, co-coordinating UNHM’s Program for FirstGen with the Organization for Refugee and Immigrant Success, and independent ESOL research. Through these experiences she has developed a strong passion for both teaching and promoting educational equity for all learners.
Although Emily will still be working on the project a few hours a week and is happy to assist you in any way, please contact Jinnea with immediate matters such as; BB issues, general questions, when you can’t get in touch with Judy L. about attendance or other questions, and setting up observations. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Her hours at this point will be Monday-Thursday from 12:00-3:00. Jinnea is looking forward to meeting all of you!
