In 2009, Jennie began teaching at the second largest high school East of the Mississippi. At the end of her second year of teaching, she created betaclassroom as first step of a journey to bridge the digital divide. That mission led her to publish her blog betaclassroom and spend the summer of 2012 as one of Edsurge's first classroom correspondents & the founding Teacher In Residence at ImagineK12. In her current role she directs KIPP Bay Area's innovation team. The innovation team ensures that every KIPP Bay Area teacher, leader and student can access and effectively use innovative practices and awesome technologies to improve outcomes.
