Hello! My name is Jen Strzelczyk and this is my 25th year working in education. For the first 21 years, I worked as a special education teacher and literacy teacher. During the last three years and currently, I am working as the district’s speech language pathologist. I travel to both East and West Leyden and work with students with varying needs related to speech, language and/or communication. I love my job and my students! Another thing I love to do is spend time with my family. My husband and I have three children, ages: 16, 15, and 9 that keep us very busy driving them around town. My youngest child has special needs, which helps me relate to my students and the parents of my students. I also enjoy cooking, traveling and relaxing with a good book (when I have time!).
