Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Jennifer Kondak
I am a lifelong educator and have been on the Groves staff since 2015. I have been in the College and Career Center since 2018.
I have a BA from Alma College and completed my NCDA credentialing in Career Development in 2019 as a Certifed Career Services Provider. My goal has been for the last 12 months to redefine for students the term "Career" and help them realize, right now, they have a Career: it's being a high school student. How do we help students make the best of their career here? By providing learning opportunities to do self-exploration. The best skills for any future career, be it job, college, or military are to be able to talk about ourselves and tell our story. I'm here to help make those narratives GREAT!
I am married, have two daughters and a rescue cat named Rocky. My volunteer work includes serving on the executive board of the Groves Choir, treasurer of the Groves Performing Arts Company parent boosters and am the Client Coordinator of Baby Basics of Troy, a local diaper bank, providing free diapers to the working poor in Troy and Clawson.
