Mrs. Jennifer Ballema

This is my fifth year at Lincoln Hall, and I couldn't be happier to be here! Prior to joining School District 74, I taught high school math at Taft High School in Chicago for eight years.


I am from Ann Arbor, Michigan. I completed my undergraduate degree in Accounting at Michigan State University and moved to Chicago immediately following. I worked for two years as a cost accountant and then returned to graduate school at DePaul University to pursue my true passion: teaching. I received my master's degree in math education and have been teaching since.
