Why Jen Kidwell? I'm so thankful to be a Mom to 3 great kids and even more thankful for a super supportive and helpful husband. I am blessed with a great job that I love and am challenged each day to be my best; I am surrounded by smart , kind and collaborative colleagues. Having a 3.97 average with 3 courses left of my Master's degree is such a great accomplishment. I have learned to balance work, family and school, and although it's not easy, it's worth it. I feel I am encouraging my children and co-workers to set goals and work diligently to achieve them.
Motto: For my family: The family that prays together, stays together. For work: The harder I work, the luckier I get. For school: Scientia Est Potestas. "Knowledge is Power". For me: Work Hard, Play hard.and The Early Bird gets the worm.
Motivation for Education: I believe education opens doors that otherwise may be closed. I believe with a Master's degree I will be able to share my knowledge and passion for learningwith others when I teach on-line or in the classroom.
Key to success: I made the best decision of my life when I married my husband! He supports me and encourages me to accomplish all goals I set for myself, my family and my job. I also chose a job that makes me happy and uses my gifts and skills to full capacity.
Advice: Surround yourself with people who are positive, are proud of you, and encourage you to follow your goals and dreams. Be kind to yourself and let some things go. Pick a career where you can grow, develop and be challenged. Have fun and do things for YOU!
