My name is Jennifer Bardrof. I have previously taught 3rd and 5th grade in Fort Myers, Florida for ten years. After missing my family like crazy, I moved back to Buffalo, NY. This is my third-year teaching in Buffalo. I received my bachelors from SUNY Freedonia. I completed my master’s in special education and ESOL (English as a Secondary Language) at Niagara University. My husband Jeremy and I are college sweethearts who have two beautiful daughters, Madelyn (who is also a 3rd grader this year!) and Addison. We also have two cats named Onyx and Maximo!
Your child will be working with me in math, ELA and science, all in English, while they receive NLA and social studies from Mr. Rivera in Spanish. We will be working in small groups with hands on activities to help develop a mastery of the concepts. My hope is there will be no homework, except for any work not completed in class. It would still help to encourage your child to read and practice their math facts every night.
I aim to bring an open mind, a positive attitude, and high expectations to the classroom each day. I strive to bring consistency, diligence, and warmth to my job in the hope that I can ultimately inspire and encourage present and future leaders.
I look forward to working alongside you as a team.
