Jennifer Jaquez joined the Brilla team as a teacher in 2022. She graduated from Monroe College in 2022, where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. Throughout her three years at Monroe College, Ms. Jaquez’s passion for working with children continued to blossom each day with the opportunities and experiences she was given with different Elementary Schools. Born and raised in the Bronx, she says giving back to her community was something she has been trying to accomplish from the moment she knew she wanted to become a teacher. Ms. Jaquez says she is more than grateful to be able to accomplish her goal with Brilla. She is super thrilled to bring her teaching experience in sharing her knowledge, and inspiration and positively impacting the lives of our future leaders. She loves to spend time with family and friends, watch sunsets, and travel the world.

“Whether you color the world or light it up blue, you are making a difference. So keep being you.”
