About Me

Hi! My name is Jenny Buck and I am currently a junior at Moravian College in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. I am from Bethlehem Township and I graduated from Freedom High School in 2008. I have two older brothers and parents named Ken and Dawn Buck. In high school, I played softball and field hockey four all four years. I was involved in Student Government, Concert Choir and Bell Choir.
I love being around friends, family and people in general. I also love making people laugh. Before I was accepted into Moravian College, I was always interested in teaching and working with children my entire life.
At Moravian, I played softball for a year and a half. When I was a freshman, I tore my ACL so I couldn't play for my whole freshman season. While I was at Moravian, I decided to participate in other extra curricular activities such as Spanish Club, Kapp Delta Pi (which is an honors education society), TLC and the Moravian mascot, "Amy."
TLC (The Learning Connection), is a program where I mentor a fourth grader from Fountain Hill Elementary School. I have been working with this student since sophomore year. I really enjoy my weekly meetings with my menti.

Since I have been at Moravian College, I have had the opportunity to work with students from Kindergarten to 5th Grade. Two of the schools that I have taught were inner-city. I realized that I really want to work in an inner-city school in the near future. In the summers during college, I started to work at a camp called, The College Settlement Camp of Philadelphia. Here, I have the opportunity to work every day with teenagers from Philadelphia. I fell in love with the challenge that this camp has given me. In the future, I hope to be the best teacher I can be and open the doors with educational success for all students. 

"I had the best experience of my life at CSC!"

Since I am studying Spanish, one of my requirements is to travel to spanish speaking countries. Trust me, I'm okay with this requirement. In May of 2010, I had the opportunity to travel to Tocúmen, Panamá, where I taught elementary bilingual children English for three weeks. I traveled to many different parts of Panamá, which I will never forget. In Fall 2011, I will be traveling to Seville, Spain to study Spanish.
