Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, my name is Jen Cilmi and I am very proud to be a first grade teacher here at Truckee Elementary! This is my tenth year teaching and my seventh year teaching in TTUSD. For the last 6 years I worked at Tahoe Lake Elementary, where I taught kindergarten for 4 years, and was our site Reading Intervention and Accelerated Learning teacher for the past 2 years. I am excited to bring my love of reading and the fine arts to my first grade classroom! I love seeing how much students grow at this age and I look forward to creating and fostering relationships with all my students and their families.
After graduating from the University of New Hampshire in 2004, I moved to Tahoe and have never left! I have a Masters of Arts in Teaching from Sierra Nevada College and a Reading Specialist credential from UC San Diego. While I’m not teaching, I love to spend time with my husband, our two young daughters, and our 8 year old lab. We love to ski, ride bikes, be at the lake, and enjoy time with our friends and family.
