Welcome to Clifford 2nd Grade, Room 7! My name is Jennifer Overbey and I am lucky to have been a member of the AMAZING Clifford Team! Before coming to Clifford, I taught middle school Language Arts and Social Studies at Adelante Spanish Immersion. I taught Kindergarten here at Clifford for 9 years before moving to second grade. I share the FABULOUS Room 7 Second Grade with Carrie Allen in a 50% job share capacity. When I am not teaching 2nd grade, I am Clifford's Technology Curriculum Integration Coach.
I grew up in the central valley, and graduated high school from San Joaquin Memorial, in Fresno, CA. I spent my college career in Dallas, TX, earning my BA in English. After spending several years as an organizational development consultant and corporate trainer, I decided to return to school to pursue my passion teaching children. I received my teaching credential from Notre Dame de Namur right here in the Bay Area. I spent my first semester student teaching in one of the illustrious first grade classes right here at Clifford. I knew then that I wanted to be a part of this amazing school and district!
I live right here in Redwood City with my husband, two children, (who also attend Clifford) and our two dogs. When I am not at school, you can usually find me at a sporting event, hiking with my family, or out and about in the community!
