My name is Jennifer VanDyne. I received my B.A. in Elementary Education from Michigan State University in 2001. Since that time I have taught 5th grade in my home state of Michigan and then decided to stay home with my own children when they were small. I became a substitute for the Mobile County Public School System for many years, before deciding to come back to the education field full-time. I am currently working on my re-certification for early childhood education. My three children all attended Hutchens Elementary and I am blessed to now be a part of this extraordinary teaching staff. I have been married to my husband, James for 16 years and we have three children, Belle (14) , Finn (10) and Fisher (9). Our family loves living on the Gulf Coast and enjoy spending our weekends boating, beaching and watching Auburn football (War Eagle) .
