Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Jennifer Bearden
HELLO and welcome to another SUPER year at Robinson! My name is Mrs. Bearden. I am starting my 21st year of teaching this year—ALL OF THEM AT ROBINSON!! I’ve been so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with many, many Robinson families over the year, in 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th grade—and now get to work with yours in 3rd! I have a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary and Early Childhood education, as well as a Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction. Additionally, I have been able to learn many new and exciting things about teaching and learning from books and articles I read, as well as from sharing knowledge with some super smart teachers I know. I’m excited to add YOU and as one of those from whom I can learn! All of us are teachers and learners, and all of us have many ways we can grow!
Aside from my amazing Robinson family, I have a pretty great one at home, too. I have been married to Mr. Bearden (Grant) for almost 23 years. He is a teacher, too, and works in Maplewood-Richmond Heights School District. My son, Riley, is a past Roadrunner and is now at KHS in 9th grade. My daughter, Allie, is a 5th grader at Robinson. We also have a puppy, Bailey, who is a Boston Terrier and came to us almost a year ago. We love to travel together, and are always up for an adventure to a new place! I’m sure you’ll hear LOTS of stories about them, as they are very important to me, and help make me who I am. I can’t wait to hear stories about YOU, too.
