My name is Jennifer Dahlgren and I am currently the Resource Teacher at Frontier Elementary. I was born and raised in San Diego but moved up to Idaho while I was in high school. After graduating from Eagle High, I spent a year as a foreign exchange student in Chile through Rotary International. Learning another language and being immersed in another culture was challenging but so rewarding! I then attended the University of Montana in Missoula, Montana for four years where I received my bachelor's degree. I returned back to Idaho and began working in Special Education as a parafrofessional for an Extended Resource Room program to get some extra hands-on experience. I eventually began teaching in the West Ada School district in 2012 as an Extended Resource Room teacher. After the birth of my son, Finn, I decided to change things up a bit and work in the Resource Room. So far, I have loved the switch and love working with these kiddos!
