Faculty Spotlights

Jennifer Toppins

After attending Belmont University for undergrad, I moved to Shanghai, China where I received my M.A from Fudan University. I then earned my M.Ed from Vanderbilt University.  After graduating from Vanderbilt in May 2021, I was looking for a strong institution where I could grow as a teacher. I was attracted to Ensworth because of its welcoming atmosphere, its openness to creativity and collaboration, and the opportunity to work with younger students. I found that the children’s curiosity and joy for learning reminded me a lot of myself when I first began to learn Chinese.

I grew up in Nashville, so I have always been aware of Ensworth as a strong academic institution with a tight-knit, family feel to it. However, it was the student profile that primarily drew me to the school. I knew Ensworth students to be inquisitive, intelligent, hardworking, and considerate—who doesn't want to teach a classroom full of kids like that? I was also excited about the opportunity to work with the tremendous faculty here at Ensworth, faculty who are the best in their fields and contribute to the sense of community that is so welcoming and encompassing.

After teaching for several years at an undergraduate level, I wanted to teach at a high school to help students build a strong foundation that will help them succeed in college. I realized that the guiding principles of Ensworth, including the mission and the vision of the institution, were very closely aligned with mine. After touring the community, I realized Ensworth was surely my second home.
