Greetings Parents!

My name is Jenna Padilla, and I am happy to be a new teacher this year at Yinghua Academy. I will be teaching grades four and five language arts, and I’m looking forward to helping your children build literacy skills throughout the school year.

I obtained my English teaching license through Iowa State University in 2008, and since then I have continued my education through Saint Mary’s University here in Minneapolis. This fall, I will begin graduate work in literacy education. I am excited to apply the most recent literacy research to my daily classroom practices.

This is my ninth year in the teaching field. Most recently, I taught English at the International School of Minnesota. In previous years, I taught at international schools and universities in Honduras, Vietnam, Japan, and the Czech Republic.

My international background reflects my love of learning that I hope to transmit to students. I’m looking forward to a great year here at Yinghua. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
