Jennifer Gunn

Hudson High School

At Hudson, Jennifer Gunn serves as both a Teacher and Extended Learning Opportunity Coordinator. This past year, she launched an internship and experience program called #GetOutThere. Since launching the program last year, she has connected over 150 students with experiential opportunities outside of the classroom.

21st Century Skills Building Initiative

During the 2016-17 academic year, Hudson H.S. will focus on creating a new credit bearing branch of their #GetOutThere program that will allow students to earn credit for engaging in Extended Learning Opportunity experiences. With Jennifer’s support, students will be charged with identifying 21st-Century Skills that they will focus on during their ELO program.

Building Block Spotlight: Verbal Communication

We live in a communication-driven world. When students clearly and successfully present information or advocate for their ideas, they are more successful. When they ask questions and challenge ideas, they are deepening not only their understanding but the work itself. When students participate in professional experiences, they find their voice.
