Miss Jennie Dhanagom

Miss Jennie Dhanagom, Network Admin/K-8 Tech Teacher & House of Gabriel Head, grew up in Los Angeles, CA and Cheverly, MD with a mother who teaches computer science. Technology has been a constant part of her life.

While attending high school and college, she spent afternoons, weekends, and summers juggling multiple jobs in fields such as: customer service, childcare, accounting, maintenance, culinary arts, office administration, and of course IT.

After graduating from Christendom College with a B.A. in Philosophy, she taught English for a year in Fukui-shi, Fukui-ken, Japan to children ages 6 months to 18 years. She enjoyed the experience immensely!

On her way back to the United States, she fulfilled a life-long dream of circumnavigating the world while visiting friends and family along the way. She worked at a wonderful Catholic school in Maryland before coming to St. Rita’s.

Miss Dhanagom enjoys the exciting ways tech can be used to enrich our lives, but firmly believes that a strong foundation in the real world is key to a healthy life. Hands-on discovering is one of her favorite ways to learn and teach, as it gives us the irreplaceable opportunity to encounter God’s awe-inspiring creations and encourages us to think on our feet.
