My name is Jennifer Gardella, and it would be my honor to be chosen as your 2022-2023 Historian for TAPT. I am seeking the opportunity to serve our organization as I want to inspire others like so many of our TAPT leaders have inspired me. I owe my Transportation journey to the amazing leaders that have encouraged me not to give up.

My passion for photography started in high school. At our school events and family functions I found my dad on the sidelines capturing pictures for others. From there it was a like a fire lit in me, I took photography classes and I was historian for our drill team. Over my kid’s childhood years, I have served on PTO boards at their school campuses in many functions. I have helped with planning meetings, helped teachers on campus, volunteered at functions, and prepared the students yearbooks. I love the view through my camera lens and that passion I carry with me to capture those priceless moments.

I have been in the education field for over 19 years. I love everything about kids and helping shape their future. I started my journey serving as Director and supervisor of multiple DaySchool/Preschools. That is where my love for the yellow bus started. 5 years ago, I started with an ISD as a bus driver to help with shortages. In that time, I was able to serve as a supervisor over our department. I earned NAPT Specialist and Supervisor as well as TAPT Supervisor and Specialist. I graduated from Texas A&M Commerce with my Bachelor in 2013.

I strive every day to make a difference and provide a positive outlook. I encourage you to vote, if not for me then vote for someone that will let your ideas SHINE. We all are part of the TAPT TEAM and YOUR voice counts! It would be a great blessing to gain your support.

I feel my experience behind the lens and my love for serving others it would be my pleasure to serve as Historian. Thank you in advance for your support.
