"Quite the contrary. All grown-ups get scared, just like children."
~ Miss Honey

Jennifer "Jenny" Honey is the deuteragonist of Roald Dahl's Matilda. She is Matilda Wormwood's school teacher. She is played by Embeth Davitz in the film adaptation..

Unlike the school principal, Agatha Trunchbull (who is her aunt), she is a selfless, innocent, nice woman. She has a dark secret, but she doesn't intend to let it interfere with her teaching, although she accidentally does in the climax.

Prior to the events, according to a flashback, her mother died when she was two, and her father, a doctor, died when she was five.

Since her father's death, Miss Honey was abused by her aunt, and the latter took away what she had and made sure she couldn't even sneak a chocolate. Throughout the movie, Miss Honey may be innocent but she's not afraid to speak her mind, like when she tells off Mr. and Mrs. Wormwood and stands up to Miss Trunchbull and helps Matilda and her class run Trunchbull off for good at the end of the film.


  • Jennifer's actions in revealing Trunchbull's fear of supernatural things to Matilda can be considered as Checkov Gun, as by the time Matilda has mastered her psychic powers, the said power turned out come in handy to teach Trunchbull a lesson for her wrongdoings.
