Meet Your Neighbor Jenny Halcomb of Monmouth.

Jenny is on the staff as a new teacher at West Central Middle School in Stronghurst.

She teaches 7th and 8th grade math and 7th grade literature.

She was born and raised in Monmouth.

She graduated from Monmouth High School in 1994 and from Western Illinois University, in Macomb, in 1999.

She has also taken classes in Special Education toward earning her Master's degree. Her parents are Jim and Ann Halcomb of Monmouth. Her dad is semi-retired and her mom is part-owner of Monmouth Farm and Home Realty.

She is the youngest of five children. She has two brothers, Jimmy (wife Tammy), Jared; two sisters, Gina (husband Dean) Crandall and Jevanie (husband Matt) Gillen.

Jenny enjoys traveling, in fact, she was a flight attendant for two years flying around the world to China, South America, Europe, Amsterdam and Germany to name a few.

Jenny's priorities are her family and friends but she enjoys shopping, listening to music, CNN and the Fox news channels.

A memory she will always remember was her first trip to South America, as a flight attendant, when everything was stolen, even her passport!
