As early as the fifth grade, Jennifer Cauzza knew she wanted to be a teacher. Committed to that goal, and much to the surprise of her parents, she graduated from Julian High School, attended San Diego State University and obtained her Multiple Subject Teaching Credential with supplementary authorizations in English and Technology. Ms. Cauzza taught grades K-12, including GATE programs. In addition to teaching, Ms. Cauzza held various leadership positions including Union President, Mentor Teacher, and Friends of the Library Chairperson. In 1999, Ms. Cauzza accepted the position of Executive Director of Julian Charter School, moving from the classroom to the administration side of education, and went on to obtain her Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from Point Loma Nazarene University. During the past 20 years, Ms. Cauzza has expanded upon her passion in educating children through building personalized learning programs for students in the San Diego, Riverside and Orange counties. Ms. Cauzza lives in Julian with her husband of 35 years, Adam. She has two grown children, Allison and Joseph. Her leisure time is spent with her family on their ranch, traveling, and making memories with friends and her 4 grandsons.
