Ms. Lehman was such a joy to be around and very funny! Her teamwork helping BJ Van Noy with the RVJH musicals was inspiring to be around. Such a talented teacher and very, very bright. We were all so fortunate. Condolences to the family of this extraordinary woman.

Miss Lehman, as we called her in 1970 at Rincon Valley Junior High, was my 7th grade English teacher. She was one of the best teachers I ever had. She truly cared about her students. She was engaging and brought life to each and every assignment. Thank you for making the leap from Sequoia Elementary to Rincon Valley Junior High so easy. You were always so warm and welcoming. Blessings to you.

Jennifer layman was a awesome teacher at RVJH and I had the honor of working with her at RVJH as she came to sub and help BJ vannoy with all the plays.
Rest in peace Jennifer layman you will be missed but will never be forgotten.
Love you always!

I remember her as a kind gentle soul when she taught at RVMS
when I attended 1978-1980. Rip Ms. Lehman.

To Ms. Lehman's family - I'm so very sorry for your loss. Please know that she was an extraordinary teacher. Very few teachers can see your potential with that real, keen intelligence. Jennifer is the best teacher I ever had - she taught me to write, she gave me confidence in my own intellect. I'm an so thankful. She will be deeply missed by her students and remembered for sharing her rare gifts with so many.

So very sorry to read this today. She was one of my favorite teachers, and yes, she will be remembered forever! So sorry for your loss.

Ohhhh, I wasn’t expecting the blow of this news. I had just noticed her birthday and posted on her FB wall a little note. I am just so sorry I hadn’t made some time to see her face again. Without imagining I am the only one with such a story, people who know me, know that Jennifer, once saved my life. As a teacher and as a friend, she gave me the place to come with my heart wide open. To talk about the stuff I couldn’t talk with anyone else about, as a troubled young adolescent. Jennifer had...

In loving memory of Ms. Lehman, one of my all-time favorite teachers. I was lucky enough to have her for Latin, English and Drama in Jr. High. She always saw the best in people and believed in me when even I didn’t have a lot of confidence in myself. She had crossed my mind just the other day. I hope she realizes what a force she was to so many of her students. Some of my best memories were in her classes and the plays that she directed. It helped to shape much of what I did in high school...

“Gladly would he learn and teach” might originally have applied to Chaucer’s Clerk, but with a slight alteration, would apply to Jennifer Lehman. We think of her as a versatile teacher of drama and English. How many remember her at Santa Rosa High School teaching three levels of Latin during O period in the choral room? Simultaneously. She loved the challenge of keeping one step ahead of the students but pulled off this feat effortlessly. I cannot remember her without a smile. She never...
