Jennifer McGraner

Welcome and hello! My name is Jen McGraner and I am the 7th and 8th grade EL teacher at Lakeview JH. This is my 15th year teaching English Learners. My passions are language acquisition, culturally responsive teaching, educational technology integration/design, and literacy! I believe that being bilingual and multilingual is an asset and a superpower.

I am originally from Zanesville, Ohio, and currently live with my husband in Pataskala. I enjoy reading, cooking, listening to music, Netflix, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.

I look forward to building relationships with students and families this school year! Please feel free to reach out to me anytime with questions or concerns. Go Panthers!
