My name is Jennifer Coufal. This is my 18th year teaching, my 3rd year at South Lakes Elementary, and my 2nd year as a CCR Special Education Teacher. I graduated from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania with a dual degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education. It wasn't until I started teaching and working with students with special needs in the regular education classroom as a kindergarten teacher, that I realized my love for special education and added special education to my teaching certification. I believe all children can learn, and will learn when given the opportunity and the support they need. When given the right environment, children will teach us more than we could ever teach them. When I'm not at school, you will find me spending time with my husband and two daughters. Both of my daughters attend South Lakes Elementary and we all love being Sea Turtles! You can often find our family at the beach, in the mountains, or doing some traveling around the country looking for our next great adventure. We enjoy attending concerts and seeing new places. If we aren't out and about, you'll find me curled up with a good book, or trying to learn something new.
