Who am I?

Dun-a-nun-a-nun-a-nun-a Bat Jen Bat Jen!

Hello and Welcome!

My name is Jennifer Dunne (but please call me Jen!) and I promise that I don’t dress like this every day!  As you can probably tell, I am a huge comic book fan.  But that is not all – I also love to create art and I look forward to the day that I become a teacher.

All About Me:

Okay, that's a bit more like it!

Name: Jennifer Dunne

Age: 29 years old

Motto:

Creativity is alive in everyone.  It is just like a muscle.  The more we use it, the stronger it will be!

The world needs more creative and critical thinkers and the Arts can help us pave the way.

Pet Peeve:

People who say “I can’t draw.  I can’t even draw a stick figure!”

To which I reply “Of course you can, everyone can draw.”

Heroes
