My name is Jennifer Boyden and this is my 14th year at COIL. I teach grades 7-12 and I absolutely love my job! I received my bachelor's degree from U.C. Davis in International Relations and my teaching credential from Sacramento State University. After working as a reading specialist for a few years, I went back to school to earn my Masters Degree in Education from Cal State East Bay, specializing in Reading Instruction. I am so thrilled to be teaching here at COIL! I love working with students and their families by finding both curriculum and assignments that will help them learn and succeed. COIL is a fantastic place to personalize coursework, and I really enjoy collaborating with and guiding students towards graduation and their future education or career goals.
