Hi!! I am Jessica Quenet and currently working towards getting my Master’s Degree in Education at Marymount University. I have been living in the Washington, DC area since moving here to attend American University in 2000. I was out of school for 9 years before starting graduate school in May ’13- so I’m definitely a little rusty. When I was in junior high we took typing on a typewriter.. Yes, a typewriter. In high school we had computers but we only used them in science to make graphs (which I do not remember how to do). I’ve never done a PowerPoint. So yeah.. I am not very tech savvy at all. This blog is really new territory for me, so I appreciate you following me and commenting! I’m incredibly excited about this next chapter and learning as I go!
I am originally from Monmouth County, New Jersey– right on the beach. Its amazing growing up so close to the beach- though my NJ Shore has gotten some terrible press with that little MTV show. I can assure you that its nothing like most people imagine. I have no idea how to “fist pump”, my skin is not that special NJ shade of orange, I know how to say dog and coffee properly (not dawg or cawfee), and my hair is relatively small. I am proud to be from New Jersey. Although, I plan to stay in Northern Virginia for good.
A little more about me… I’m OCD organized- my closet is organized by type, color, and length of sleeve. Nothing brightens my day like freshly laid carpet lines. I have a labeler and I definitely over use it. I love to play soccer. I play defense and I usually go for the ankles.. I mean the ball. I have 2 adorable dogs- Sophie and Bella. My dog Sophie has “lazy tongue syndrome”.. meaning shes SO lazy she cant even be bothered to keep her tongue in her mouth- even when its closed. She’s a real character. I love my friends and family but definitely don’t get to see them as often as I’d like. I love kids (probably because they are closer to my height than people my own age) and I’m so excited to become a teacher!
I guess that’s pretty much me in a nutshell!
Again, Thanks for following!
