Miss Jennie Dhanagom

Miss Jennie Dhanagom, Network Admin & K-8 Media & Technology Teacher, grew up in metropolises with a Catholic mother, a Buddhist father, and a diverse peer group that ran the spectrum, which blessed her with ample life opportunities to contemplate and communicate the truths of the Catholic Faith.

After graduating from Christendom College with a B.A. in Philosophy, she taught English in Fukui-shi, Fukui-ken, Japan to children ages 6 months to 18 years.  On her way back to the United States, Miss Dhanagom fulfilled a life-long dream of circumnavigating the world while visiting friends and family along the way. She loves solo-travelling to all kinds of places and learning new cultures, languages, and traditions. She has enjoyed pilgrimages to Lourdes, Rome, and Loreto, and walked part of the Camino de Santiago. The physical, emotional, and spiritual journey along the Comino de Santiago remains one of her favorite memories.

Miss Dhanagom enjoys discussions–both deep and fanciful–as well as travelling, reading, drawing, writing, crafting, and listening to music. She also enjoys dabbling in sports, from soccer rec teams and volleyball tourneys to swing and contra dancing. She has also begun figure skating and aerial silks, and absolutely loves them!
