Even when I’m not working I’m still surrounded by children. They bring so much joy and happiness to me. Their sense of wonder and excitement always makes me smile.

A little bit about me…
I was born in Boston and adopted by my parents when I was 2 months old. We moved to Woodland Hills when I was 3 years old. I have two Korean sisters who my parents also adopted. My sister Becky and her family moved to Japan in 2004 but visit us all summer long. My sister Lori is still close by.
My husband Bobby & I were high school sweet hearts at El Camino Real High School in Woodland Hills and we had a beautiful wedding at St. Luke’s right across the street from Halsey. (St. Luke’s is also where we hold our Annual Graduation Program.) I’ve been part of the Rice/Halsey family since I was a teenager.
Bobby and I have two boys Christopher (13) & Kevin (11) who love to help us out at the school. They both went to Halsey for 5 years. So did all 12 of my nieces and nephews!
When I’m not teaching…
I love to be with my family. It doesn’t matter what we are doing. We love to go on field trips; Sky High, horse back riding, kayaking, Magic Mountain, Disneyland… and when we do we usually have a bunch of other children with us too! It’s always fun!
I enjoy exercising at the gym, hiking, biking at the beach, walking and just being outside.
I love being a mother and support Christopher & Kevin in whatever they are doing; running track, volunteering, math-a-thons, Leadership Club, Junior Honor Society…

We LOVE Halsey! Thank you for all that you do. It is wonderful being able to see a business owner, Ms. Jenni, that cares so much for the children at the school.
Ms. Jenni has been so caring and welcoming. She always knows what to do.
She is always smiling and her smile says so much about her and how she feels about children and helping others. No matter how you feel you alway smile back at her. Children light up when they see her. Parents and teachers look to her for guidance, help and advice. She runs a terrific program and makes sure everyone is happy.
