Jennifer currently co-directs Pacifica Montessori School with her husband Stephen Call. She has been a part of the school since its inception in 1983 and taught one of the Montessori Primary classes for over 25 years. Welcoming children and guiding them during these early years has been her joy and passion.
Although Jennifer is a Los Angeles native, she believes her experience traveling around the world for over 10 years and living in such diverse places as Jachenau, a little farm town in Germany, and San Jose del Pacifico, on the steep slopes of the Oaxacan mountains in Mexico, led her to discover her love for learning and teaching. The experience of being welcomed by people around the world made her a citizen of the world.
After returning to Los Angeles, Jennifer resumed her education, discovered Montessori and took the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) teacher training. What Jennifer loves most about her position as Co-Director is supporting the Montessori teachers in achieving their classroom goals and being able to work with all Pacifica Montessori children on science projects, art, sewing, and baking.
Jennifer’s sons attended Pacifica from Preschool through Elementary. Happily, both live in Los Angeles and often come home for a meal of good Mexican food.
