Congrats to the Grads! Profiles in Success—2015

Jennifer Bumbico answers the call to teach

jennifer bumbicoBefore she finished her undergraduate degree in psychology at another institution, Georgian Court graduate student Jennifer Bumbico was no stranger to leadership and involvement. Years ago, she put her B.A. in psychology and her K-5 elementary education certificate to good use in the Dominican Republic and Guatemala where she worked to build relationships and improve living conditions.
In the last two and half years, however, Jennifer has focused on her true calling: teaching.

“Catholic education has always been an important part of my life,” says the third-grade teacher who works at Saint Mary Elementary School in Middletown, N.J. She’s been there for seven years.

“Being able to teach in my own parish and at my childhood alma mater is very rewarding. It has been an amazing experience participating in the Catholic Leadership Cohort at Georgian Court. My life has changed so much as I learned from my professors and created life-lasting friendships with my classmates. . . ”

As an educator, continuing one’s education is critical in the field. We can never learn too much! I challenge others to learn something new every day!

She believes that sharing and teaching the Gospel to young people is a high calling—and that being able to blend her faith, commitment to Catholic teachings, and her chosen profession is a blessing.

“It is crucial for the development of leaders who have the tools necessary to carry schools into the future,” says Jennifer, who wants to move into school leadership. “During my internship at GCU, I had the privilege of working alongside my principal on 18 projects aligned with Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) Standards. As an educator, continuing one’s education is critical in the field. We can never learn too much! I challenge others to learn something new every day!”
