Welcome! My name is Jen Martel and I am super excited to join the AES team. I am thrilled to begin my 25th year teaching with you. I am a parent with almost 19 years experience. I am fortunate to have 3 great children and a wonderful husband, all who support my work in the classroom. We also have a family dog, Miley. I enjoy spending time on Cape Cod, playing scrabble and being with my family. I am passionate about learning and recently completed my second Masters of Education program. Initially, I graduated from Bridgewater State University with a focus in Early Childhood Education and Special Education. Then, I obtained my first Masters degree from Rivier College in Educational Studies focusing on Parenting Education. Finally, this past October, I completed another degree program in Educational Leadership through Southern New Hampshire University. With great enthusiasm, I join the AES team and hope to meet as many members of the Allenstown community.
