Mrs. Jeanine Colwell
I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois.
I received my Bachelor of Science degree with a teaching certificate from Eastern Illinois University. I obtained a Masters degree in Mathematics from Northeastern Illinois University. I finished my Doctoral Classes at Walden University for an Education doctorate in Leadership.
I have taught school for 34 years. Most of my experience has been at the community college level. I love teaching and I have a sincere passion for it.
I am married and I have a 33 year old son, twin 26 year olds (a boy and a girl) and twin 18 year olds (both boys). They are all adopted and all have special needs. I also have a 5 year old granddaughter.
I have 2 dogs, they are both mixed breeds.
I enjoy camping and all animals.
I have lived in Newport, NC for 22 years and I love this area.
