About Jen L. Stratton, Ed.D.

Hello Everyone,

Thank you for reading, thinking and sharing the stories of Team Possible!

Here I am with my awesome husband, Seth, and totally amazing kids, Nolan, Caitlin, and Ian. #strattonpartyof5

Here are a few facts about me:

1. I believe EVERYONE has the right to play and be represented.

2. I have taught kindergarten through graduate level students. I think teaching is like conducting an orchestra. When every instrument plays its role, the sound is beautiful and can move you to tears.

3. I believe EVERYONE has a story. I find the world and all the people in it simply fascinating. We just have to be willing to listen.

4. My favorite summer time activity is hiking on the coast of Maine. Of course, these hikes are usually followed with a trip to a local ice cream shop.

5. I love the unifying power of sports. I find exercise is vital for me to juggle all of the demands of life.

Believe in the possible,


Interested in learning more about my work… I love doing presentations on the topics of adaptive sports, writing non-fiction, blogging, and believing in the possible. If you are looking for an interactive educational experience for your students or educators from kindergarten to the doctoral level, please feel free to contact me.
