Mauch Jenny

Ms. Jenny L. Mauch has roots in Colorado, but moved to Cincinnati, Ohio at an early age. Education runs in her blood with both sides of her family serving as educators, school board presidents and school support personnel. In 1999, Ms. Mauch found her passion and purpose in public urban education and began teaching in the west end of Cincinnati. She continued most of her teaching career in Price Hill, where she also volunteered. After spending time as a Master Teacher and an Assistant Principal, she moved into the principal role at Pleasant Ridge Montessori. In her role as principal in one of five neighborhood Montessori schools at the time, she focused her efforts on equity in access for all students and empowering the talent of her dedicated staff to create a cohesive school community. After six years in the principal-ship, Ms. Mauch was promoted to Leadership Manager in the Talent Department of Cincinnati Public Schools. In this role, she was able to marry her passion for public education and empowering others to make an impact in their communities. She expanded that impact when she began her work at Hamilton County Educational Service Center. During her first year as a Leadership Consultant, she had the opportunity to support districts of a different landscape – including small urban to large rural districts. She took that understanding of the diverse landscape and talent needs across the region with her when she moved into the Director of Talent, Engagement and Development for HCESC. Under her leadership, the organization has begun to utilize data to strategically analyze how to strengthen an inclusive culture, diversify the pipeline of educators both at HCESC and across the region, and create a culture of learning for all employees. In August of 2024, she will shift into the role of Executive Director of Human Resources at HCESC, and she looks forward to strengthening systems and processes in support of human capital both internally and throughout the region. When not working, Ms. Mauch loves to explore the city in which she lives and experience all that downtown Cincinnati has to offer.
