Miss Jennifer Jim


My name is Jennifer Jim and I am the new orchestra teacher at Franklin Middle School. I moved from Sacramento, CA to the Oak Park/River Forest area. I was absolutely thrilled and honored to accept the orchestra director position at Franklin Middle School. After meeting and working with Mrs. Carrie Provost, I am in awe at the program she has created over the years she has worked in the district. She is the definition of an effective teacher and a wonderful person. My main instruments are the Violin and Piano. 

I studied Ethnomusicology and Music Education at the University of California, Los Angeles. I also received my masters at California State University, Sacramento in Violin Performance. After following in love with the teaching profession I eventually settled down in Sacramento, CA teaching band and orchestra at Foothill High School. Over the years, I have attended numerous ASTA (American String Teacher's) conferences and have participated in Suzuki Teacher Training Certification up to Level 4. 

I will be hard at work this year to maintain and strengthen the orchestra program at Franklin. Thank you so much for the priviledge and honor of carrying on the legacy of this program. Cheers to a great 2017-2018 school year!
