It's that time of the year again and it seems like the Summer has gone by way too fast! The older I get, time seems to be speeding up for some reason. Jennifer Owens is an educator and was an elementary school teacher for 32 years. She shares her passion of teaching and the difference a teacher can make in the life of a child. I love Jennifer's energy and enjoyed hearing her explain the experiences she had as a teacher.

Jennifer shares some helpful tips and advice for new teachers and parents. We talked about what the first day of school is like for the kids and the teachers. I loved hearing about her first teaching experience in the Ashland Public Schools and then her experience as a teacher at Owensboro Middle School.


Jennifer talks about what inspired her to go into the education profession and her love of school as a child. We also discussed the importance of exercise and how cross training the body with difference forms of exercise is the way to go.

You can listen to Jennifer on Shaped by Faith this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 8:00 AM on 1490 WOMI and 99.1 FM.
