Athlos Leadership Academy

Ms. Jennifer Baccam » Welcome!

Welcome!

Hello! Welcome to 8th Grade Math! My name is Jen Baccam and this will be my second year at Athlos Leadership Academy. I was born and raised in Brooklyn Park, MN and I graduated from Augsburg University. At Augsburg I received a degree in Mathematics for Secondary Education. In my spare time I like to play the piano, listen to music, hike, camp, and fish. I also have a strong love for coffee, plants, and dogs.
 
I'm excited for this school year and feel free to contact me with questions, comments, and concerns throughout the school year. Also subscribe to this webpage so that you can receive daily updates.
