Jennifer Hazelwood, a current NIET senior program specialist, worked in Jefferson Parish for 22 years before coming to NIET. In Jefferson, she was a homeroom teacher for 15 years in grades varying from first to sixth. Hazelwood became TAP master teacher at Clancy Elementary, then was the district-based executive master teacher for Jefferson to monitor TAP processes for seven of the 14 TAP schools in Jefferson. She then became an ELA school support specialist for Jefferson. Jennifer retired from the system and joined NIET in July 2018. She is glad to be working with NIET systems in wonderful schools around Louisiana.
