Jenny Sauve currently serves as an Instructional Coach in Wisconsin. She graduated from UW-La Crosse in 2007 with a degree in early childhood/elementary education and is currently obtaining her Reading Specialist license through UW-Stout. She has rocked the classroom for nine years as a classroom teacher in grades Kindergarten-4th grade, became a licensed in-home daycare provider along the journey, and also directed an elementary-aged before and after school program. Jenny has had the opportunity to live and work in Mesa Arizona, Shell Lake & Roberts Wisconsin and now she calls the tiny town of Elmwood her home in a brand new role as an instructional coach. She is growing and learning much about herself as she navigates life as a wife, mother of four, educator, grad student and now coaching others to fulfill their strengths and continue striving to be better for the children they serve together. Jenny’s mission is simple and beautiful:, to be a light for those in her life. She has always longed to remain in the background and has learned in her 36 years that God has given her a servant’s heart, a gift she is still navigating. She knew working with young children was her calling when she began teaching 13 years ago. In that time she has become passionate about instilling a value of self-worth in each child with whom she works, creating and fostering meaningful relationships with her students and colleagues.
In this episode, Jenny shares about her journey in education and life surrounding what has brought her to her current role now as an instructional coach. We discuss the ways she has transitioned and how each uncomfortable shift after getting comfortable has led her to be able to serve the staff and students well and with grace. Sharing my friend with all of you is a true gift to me as this woman has been an integral part of my life through a challenging and joyful decade or so, and her insights are precious. I know there is a mission in her message here for you today, friends, and it brings me the deepest of joy to share with you Jenny Sauve’s coaching story.
