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.


BS in Special Education from EIU – 1993
