Mrs. Cardenas' Creative Caterpillars
ECSE / Inclusion Teacher
ECSE / Inclusion Assistant
My name is Jennifer Cardenas. I have worked in PAISD for the past 8 years as the ECSE/Inclusion teacher. I have 20+ years experience in education. I was a special education teacher's aide for 14 years. Working with young children has always been a life long dream of mine. I love my job, and most of all love seeing the progress my students make each year!!
I am a Port Arthur native and graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School in 1993. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a dual certification in General Education EC-6th grade and a Special Education degree EC-12. I graduated from Lamar University with honors in 2012. I received the honor of being named the Magna Cum Ladue upon graduation from Lamar University.
Miss Kelvisha Cormier and I enjoy teaching your children. We always work hard to ensure our students know the love of learning, and receive the best education possible.
"Great teachers engineer learning experiences that put students in the driver's seat and then get out of the way."

"Students learn best when they feel welcomed, loved, comfortable, and safe."
