Rhonda Jenkins

Rhonda has been a teacher for over 15 years, originally starting in the education profession as a one-on-one aide for a student with special needs. She realized from that experience that she would enjoy being a teacher, so she returned to college and graduated in 1999 at 38 years old with her teaching credentials. She had finally decided what she wanted to be when she grew up! Rhonda now works as a Library Media Center Director as a teacher/librarian or “Tibraian” at Kendall Elementary School in Naperville, Illinois. Through all of this, she learned that she absolutely loves learning. Rhonda, who is known as the tech guru in her building, has three Master’s degrees: Technology in Education, Reading and Literacy, and Educational Leadership.
