Jenna has been at Rising Stars since she was three years old! She started out as a dancer and trained extensively under both directors Joelle Iuliano and Jody Myslinski in ballet, tap, jazz, and hip-hop. Jenna became a teacher's assistant after enrolling in the very popular STARS (Select Teacher Assistants of Rising Stars) program. Jenna went on to become a Rising Stars' teacher in 2003. She pursued her Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education at Rider University and graduated in 2008. At the present time, Jenna is continuing to further her education at Kean University, working toward her Masters degree in Special Education while employed as a high school special education history teacher in northern New Jersey. Dance has been a deep passion for Jenna since she was a little girl, and she truly enjoys sharing that passion with her students in dance class. At Rising Stars, Jenna teaches the very special and unique program, "Special Stars," as well as teaching our younger students ages 2 1/2 to 12 years old.
