Hi! I am Jen Coplen, Director of Learning for North Adams Community Schools. In this role, I help to facilitate the curriculum, professional development, data, and Federal and State programs for the district. I have been in education for 10 years—9 years working as an elementary classroom teacher and 1 year as a district administrator. After working internationally in Venezuela and South Africa for three years, I returned home to Indiana to continue my career. I believe that learning continues at every age, and I am excited to be learning alongside the administrators, teachers, staff, students, and parents at North Adams Community Schools.
I was born and raised in Northeast Indiana and currently live in Fort Wayne with my husband, Justin. In my free time, I enjoy reading, baking, and trying local coffee shops and restaurants. Justin and I are avid travelers and are always looking for ideas for our next adventure.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments. I look forward to working with the North Adams and Decatur community to create the best learning environment for our students.
