Hello! My name is Jenny Covino and I am so happy to be teaching Kindergarten at BFSMS. I graduated from Wayland Baptist University with a degree in Early Childhood Development and have had the privilege of being the Spanish teacher and Librarian here from the years 2005-2011 when my daughter Aubrey was in elementary at BFSMS. After years away teaching at a couple of other schools, I feel like I have come 'home'.
Aubrey just began her first year of college in Florida and my older daughter Gwendolyn is studying 3rd year medicine. My husband Tom is a golf professional and gospel preacher - I'm truly thankful for the blessings in my life . Since my 'babies' are grown and flown, I am honored to have a classroom full of young hearts to spend the days with. I promise to give them my all each day, making learning fun and providing them with a classroom of acceptance and love.
I will always give a ready response as to how this school has impacted my daughter's life and mine. Both of us made life long friends and the Core Knowledge curriculum is an important base in my daughter Aubrey's education. Years ago I knew Buckner Fanning and his sweet wife , Martha, and know that their vision of this school was to share Jesus' love. I see that happening every day here and I strive to shine my light and plant a seed as best I can.
I love reading (especially British mysteries), traveling with my husband to destination golf courses, flipping houses, art and design of all sorts. My favorite passage in the bible is Proverbs 31. I am an advocate and volunteer for Unreached Africa/African Hope providing Christian education to orphaned children, Southwest Key Program serving underprivileged youth and unaccompanied minors, and the Epilepsy Foundation of South Texas. These causes are near and dear to my heart!
