"I served on the Orange Grove Board with Jen Mieras for two years, and she is a smart, common-sense,
problem solver focused on the kids.
At the height of the pandemic, we had a substitute shortage. Jen offered to become a substitute teacher without compensation*.
Jen is a true public servant who listens to all voices, asks the hard questions, and pushes for continuous improvements and increased accountability."
Susan chase, 25+ School Teacher & Guidance Counselor; Orange Grove Charter Board Teacher Representative (2019-2021)
*In accordance with policy, Jen was compensated in the same manner as other substitutes. The rate was set by the Orange Grove administration several years prior and not amended by the OG Charter Board during Jen's service.
