About the Reviewer:

Hi! My name is Jennifer Costanza and I am a senior at the University of Arizona with a major of Elementary Education. I began my college career with a marketing major but decided to change my major at the end of my sophomore year to Elementary Education. After volunteering my first year at Casas Adobes Baptist Church to help teach Sunday school and coaching a 2nd-grade Pop Warner cheer squad, I fell in love with children and knew that I wanted to devote my life to teaching them!

I was recently married and my husband, Jesse, has been a huge support and encouragement to me during my education. I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona and am looking forward to teaching here once I graduate in 2003! I also love to read and write, and hope to one day become a children's book author, which has been a dream of mine since I was a child. (Spring 2002)
