I am a product of the Peoria Unified School District. When my husband and I graduated college, I knew I wanted to teach in Peoria. My school is my second family and for the past 15 years I’ve had the opportunity to learn from and work with some of the best teachers in the state!Jennifer Wood | 5th Grade, Coyote Hills Elementary
