Hello friends and family!
I'm Ms. Jeanie. This is my 3rd year teaching at Highland School. I am so excited to be your child’s teacher this year. Ms. Lucy is my bilingual assistant and will be working with your child as well. I grew up in South Chicago Heights and feel so lucky to teach in the community I grew up in. I currently live in Indiana with my husband and 4 children.
I attended Governor’s State University and received a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education with an endorsement in Special Education. I also attended St.Francis University and received an English as a Second Language endorsement. Teaching little ones was something I always knew I wanted to do. Being a child’s first teacher and seeing the students grow and develop skills is fun and rewarding. In my free time I like spending time with my family: relaxing outside in my hammock and watching movies (with popcorn of course).
