Jennifer Rickert

Hi! My name is Jennifer Rickert and I'm so excited to be a part of the Langston Hughes community as Learning Coach this year! My family and I moved to Kansas last summer from northern Michigan--my husband is a Bowling Coach at Ottawa University.  This is my second year in the district. I previously served as the Kansas Reading Roadmap Program Coordinator (Reading Intervention) for grades K-3 last year at Kennedy Elementary.  This is my 15th year working in Education.  I have taught second, third, and fourth grades, as well as preschool and eight years in kindergarten. During that time, I have also been raising my four beautiful children.  I am so excited to meet you and support our wonderful staff, students, and families!  I hope we get to meet face-to-face soon.
