Jena Borah

Name Jena Borah
Location Charleston, Illinois
Role Writer/Researcher
Membership National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE)
 

In each phase of my journey as an educator, NCTE and the ReadWriteThink website have been sources of guidance and inspiration, and I am grateful to be a contributor.

After graduating from the University of Illinois with a degree in elementary education, Jena chose to spend sixteen years educating her three children at home following a student-centered, interest-led and project-based approach.  When her students graduated, she completed a masters degree with Reading Teacher certification at Eastern Illinois University and taught one year as a Title 1 reading teacher, serving kindergarten through eighth grade students. Today she is a writer and researcher with interests in gender and sexual diversity and the role of social and emotional growth in middle level learners.
