My name is Jen Bluestein. I am originally from Long Island, New York although I have been told I do not have the accent to prove it! I began teaching at McKinley in the Multi-Intervention Program for students with Autism and related disorders (MIPA) in 2014. Previously I taught in Alexandria as well as in Arlington at Glebe Elementary. I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Elementary and Special Education from Towson University in 2011. Currently, I am pursuing my Masters of Education in Special Education with a certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis from George Mason University. When I am not in the classroom or studying, I love practicing yoga, cooking, and working on my amateur travel photography skills.
