Mrs. Jennifer Slezak

 Ms. Livia- our hero
This is me with my friend, Livia Krancberg.  She has been coming to our school for 9 years to tell her story.  Her story is one that needs to be told because it is one of tolerance, acceptance and responsibility.  I think that she has these traits engrained in her because she was born to teach, but, also, because she survived Aucshwitz and the Nazi's.  This makes her story all the more powerful.  

English Teacher

Hello!  I teach 7th and 8th GATE  grade English.  This is my 13th year here at Wangenheim.  I might know a few of your parents, too, since I attended  Wangenheim and graduated from Mira Mesa High in 1991. 
Some students may remember me as Mrs. Hinojosa.

About Me

I have been teaching for 16 years.  My first four years I taught in a private International American School in Guadalajara, Mexico.  I am happy to say that I am bilingual after this experience!  I have been at Wangenheim for 12 years and enjoy when former students come and visit.
