She had this to say about Jennifer:
I awarded an EDGE Challenge Coin to Esplanade's School Psychologist, Jennifer Moncrief, on Tuesday, April April 14th for exemplifying the EDGE focus area 3.0 Genuine Wellness and Safety. Jennifer continually amazes me by her dedication to the health and well-being of all around her. She supports staff and students alike, provides behavioral support, social/emotional support, purchases sensory items for students out of her own funds, and searches for ideas until we as a school team have the right formula of strategies and supports for a child to be successful. She cares deeply about the health and well-being of OUSD families, During this time of uncertainty for many students, their families, and even staff, she makes sure we are all safe and have what we need to be secure. She is an asset to Esplanade Elementary and OUSD.
