Jennifer Hursh is an experienced instructor and content developer. She has spent the past decade teaching, writing curriculum, and training others to do the same. During her time as a classroom teacher, she quickly established herself as a high-quality instructor, winning awards in 2016 and 2017 for her exemplary teaching.

When everything shifted online in spring 2020, she pivoted to creating content for self-paced and instructor-led eLearning, as well as helping to spearhead her team’s transition to remote instruction. For the 2+ years of the pandemic, she continued designing and teaching engaging lessons in a virtual environment.

Jennifer is a graduate of the University of Virginia and George Mason University, and currently lives in northern Virginia with her husband and two very fluffy cats.
