Meet Ida Jenkins!

Welcome Ida Jenkins, our new Summer Camp Director, Capstone & Transportation Coordinator! 

I am very excited to be a part of the TIS community! I moved to Portland from Vermont in 2010 and have worked in summer camps for ten years, including directing a summer camp at Oregon Episcopal School for two years. I come from a big family and both of my parents work in boarding schools on the east coast – I grew up in a dorm with 100 high school boys!

In addition to summer programs, I have worked with children, families, and teachers in a variety of roles - as an after school program director, language arts teacher, and social worker. My position at TIS is a great fit for me, capturing my love of summer camp, my passion for working with children and families, and my dedication to diversity. I'm excited to be working with the TIS community.

For the moment Ida is working from the admin office in the Arthur Street building and can be reached at IdaJ@intlschool.org, 503-477-5231. Please stop by and say hello!
