Hi there! I’m Jen London.
I teach 8th grade English and advise our student media at Scribner Middle School in New Albany, IN (right across the river from Louisville, KY).
I graduated from Floyd Central High School in 2007, and I went to Ball State University where I originally majored in journalism graphics. I have a passion for journalism and graphic design, but after a few years, I realized that I really missed the academic environment and amazing discussions in an English classroom. So, I switched to teaching!
In the Fall semester of 2011 (my senior year), I completed my semester of student teaching abroad in Baumholder, Germany! I taught the children of our troops who were stationed overseas. My husband was in the Army, so the Army life was nothing new to me. Traveling Europe and experiencing so many new adventures was new to me, though. However, I will say it was the most amazing 4 months of my life, and I grew so much as a person, traveler, and world citizen from it.
After finishing my last semester in Germany, I graduated in December of 2011 from Ball State with a degree in English education with a license in journalism, too. In July 2015, I completed my Master’s in Curriculum & Technology from Ball State.
I briefly taught at Jeffersonville High School before coming to Scribner in the spring of 2012. I’ve been teaching 8th grade English ever since, and I couldn’t be happier!
