Jennifer Lightcap

Toddler Teacher and Pedagogista

Jennifer has taught in all of Overfield’s classes during her long tenure here, but she’s been a fixture in the toddler classroom since she returned from a break while her children were young. “This place is dear to my heart for many reasons.” Jennifer has also been the Pedagogista since 2013, when the school adopted a shared leadership model. As Pedagogista, she works with teachers on professional and curriculum development. Jennifer graduated in 1993 from The Ohio State University with a B.S. in Child and Family Studies. She earned a Pre-K teaching certificate there in 1994 and a Master of Education Degree from Wright State University in 2007. She and her husband, Chris, live with their three children, Nick, Nathan and Hailey, all Overfield alums.
