Hello! My name is Jennifer Semanisin and I am one of the Special Education teachers at Aviston Elementary. After graduating from Altamont High School, I attended Eastern Illinois University to pursue my teaching degree. I began my teaching career with the South Central School District in Kinmundy and was there from 1993-2010. Then I taught in the Wesclin School District from 2010-2013. I joined the staff at Aviston Elementary in 2016. Being a special education teacher is very rewarding and something that I am passionate about. I am dedicated to providing a positive learning experience for each of my students as I assist them in achieving academic and social success. I am very excited to be a member of the excellent staff at Aviston Elementary and be able to use my 20+ years of experience to serve the students here.
I live in Highland with my husband Dan and our two dogs, Ozzie and Kramer. In my spare time I enjoy reading, golfing, listening to music, spending time with family and friends, and cheering on the St. Louis Blues.
