Hi, I'm Jen Otte.

Founder of The Teenage Brain Thing

This is my Story 

I am an innovative educational leader with over 20 years of experience as both a teacher and an administrator. I'm also stepmom of two teenagers for over a decade. 

I'm energetic and incredibly passionate about all things education, especially when it comes to educating our teens and tweens. 

Outside of education, I enjoy spending time with my family, which includes my husband, two teenage stepchildren, and our yellow lab, Birdie.  I also love riding my Peloton, and traveling to new places (Fun Fact: I've taken high school students far away as China, Ghana, Nepal, and India!). 

My mission here behind  'The Teenage Brain Thing' is to empower teachers through knowledge, insights, and strategies in order to truly tap into the power of the teenage brain.
