Jena Olgin

Kindergarten Teacher


Jena Olgin joins the Pardes faculty as a Kindergarten teacher. Previously, Morah Jena taught 1st and 2nd grade at Bais Chaya Mushka School for Girls and at Torat Hayim in Los Angeles, California. Before that, she taught English to elementary school children in Rehovot, Israel as a Masa Israel Teaching Fellow. If Jena seems familiar to some of you it’s because she taught Lower School Technology and Lego Robotics at Pardes during the 2012-13 school year! Jena earned her Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Arizona State University. Her passion for Jewish education comes from her amazing experience she had at The Jess Schwartz Jewish Community High School. Morah Jena is so excited to be back in Phoenix and at Pardes!
