Jackie SuppriseAssistant Director

Jacqueline (Jackie) Supprise works as a physical education teacher at John Glenn Middle School, Bedford. Previously, Jackie was the Program Director of Health and Physical Education at Bedford High School. When summer arrives, she assumes her role as the central nervous system of Summer’s Edge, where she has been for 24 years. She implants her energy and expertise through the circuitry of the entire camp, directing all aspects of our programming. She earned her Masters Degree in Education Curriculum and Instruction with a Specialization in Technology from Lesley College. Jackie graduated from UMass Boston with a Massachusetts Teaching Certificate and a B.S. in physical education. She has earned her CAGS from Plymouth State University in Educational Leadership with concentration in adventure learning. Jackie is a certified Emergency Medical Technician, a Water Safety Instructor, a Lifeguard Instructor, and a C.P.R./F.P.R. Instructor. Jackie is also known at Summer’s Edge as the maven of technology; she essentially serves as Ann Marie’s own private “Geek Squad!” She does excellent work leading adventure and cooperative games, including teaching and training the staff on the latest innovations in these fields: “I enjoy seeing a group coming together to solve a problem or complete an initiative without the concern of keeping score and finding enjoyment in being active.” Jackie has traveled to Tikal National Park in Guatemala, where she was enthralled by sunsets from atop a temple, night hiking beneath a full moon, and coexisting with howler monkeys and Oropendolas.
