Jeanette Handelsman ’64 is very proud of her lifelong association with the Academy of Our Lady of Peace. Her parents had the wisdom to enroll her at OLP when she entered kindergarten and 13 years later she graduated as a member of the Class of 1964. After a time away in the Bay Area and being a full-time mom to her three children, Jeanette returned to OLP to teach biology and chemistry in 1987. As a product of a K-12 all-girls education, she developed a passion for empowering young women to realize, develop and utilize their innate leadership abilities in the CSJ tradition. Jeanette is most grateful for her time at OLP – as a student, as a teacher, as the proud mother of an OLP graduate (Elisa, ’92) and now as a member of the staff of her beloved alma mater.
