Jennie Willens
Jennie Willens has worked in Independent Schools in Los Angeles since 2002. As an arts educator, she built performing arts programs and directed productions at Brentwood School (grades K - 12) focused on interdisciplinary learning, diversity in the classroom and connecting the skills of dance, theater and music with self and community. Jennie joined the Windward School community in 2012 as the Dean of Student Life and Experiential Learning, where she directed the service learning program, advisory program, student leadership and student life initiatives. In the 2017-2018 school year, Jennie transitioned into the role of Dean of Students for the College Preparatory Division. Currently, she is honored to teach classes that focus on social justice and civic engagement while also working closely with students, teachers and parents to develop strategies for healthy communication and restorative and responsive classrooms. Jennie is the proud parent of two children (Grace and Ryan), and hopes to always share her joy for the arts, mindfulness, exploration, equity and community with her family, colleagues, students and friends.
