Upper School Student Dean/Coordinator of Secondary School Placement/Foreign Language Department Chair/Spanish Teacher
Jennifer Tanner attended Clark University where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Spanish. Several years after she began working with the talented students at Sage, Jenn returned to school herself, earning a master’s degree in Gifted Education and Talent Development from the University of Connecticut. While Jenn has worked with students of all grades during her time here, she now focuses her time working with 8th graders. In addition to teaching Spanish to our soon-to-be graduates, Jenn also assists eighth grade students and their families in finding the best next-school placement to meet their educational needs. As the Coordinator of Secondary School Placement, Jenn is excited to have the chance to work with students as they find their next steps in life, and to keep in touch with them when they are off to new places and adventures. Being a language teacher, travel is a personal interest of hers and one she loves to pass on to students through Sage’s MS travel program. This is Jenn’s twentieth year teaching at Sage and she loves the opportunity to work with such an amazing group of curious, motivated people (students and teachers)!
