Jen Oswald received her first bachelor’s degree in social studies/history from Oklahoma Panhandle State University, with the intent of becoming a history teacher.  After working at a daycare for a few years, she realized early childhood education would be a better fit.  She attended Northwestern Oklahoma State University for her bachelor’s degree in early childhood education.  After securing a teaching job at Beaver Public Schools, she soon returned to Northwestern for her master’s degree.  She taught for nearly seven years in grades 3-6 for Beaver Public Schools, and she was an adjunct instructor at Northwestern’s Woodward campus for two years before returning to Northwestern full-time in 2012.  Her certification areas include: Early Childhood (PK-3), Elementary (1-8), and Reading Specialist (PK-12).  She is currently working toward her doctorate degree in Reading and Literacy from Capella University.  She wants to provide future teachers with a strong foundation to teach reading and writing.  She believes when children have a strong literacy foundation they will be successful in school and life.
