Ms. Jennifer (Jenny) Madden
Jenny Madden, or Ms. Jenny as she called at Parkway, has more than 30 years of experience with both middle and high school students in Saint Paul Public Schools, teaching Math and French. She also worked with Concordia Language Villages French Credit Abroad program for 8 summers. She has a BA in Mathematics and French from St. Olaf College and an MED in Secondary Math Education from the University of Minnesota. Since joining the Parkway community in 2013, she became a certified Montessori teacher and earned a masters degree in Secondary Montessori Education from the University of Wisconson-River Falls.
Outside of all things mathematical or French related, singing in choir is her passion. Ms. Jenny sings currently with the St. Catherine Choral Society and the St. Thomas More Church Choir. Reading a great novel, attending a play, going to a movie or just getting out for a walk along the river are some of her favorite pastimes. Ms. Jenny and her husband have lived their whole lives in St. Paul but enjoy traveling the world, especially immersing themselves in a French-speaking locale. Either visiting or traveling with their three sons is their preference!
Teaching continues to be a thrilling adventure for Ms. Jenny. She is happy to be part of the Parkway Montessori Community where the core values of Peace, Learning, Respect, Hard Work, Community and Service guide her work with students.
