Mrs. Kelly Jacobson

Hooray for Pre-K


Hello! My name is Ms. Kelly Jacobson, I go by Ms. Kelly in the classroom. I am so privileged to be your child's teacher this school year. My mission is to provide an exceptional education and to build a strong connection with each of my students and their families. 

This school year is my 19th year of teaching Pre-K in the Chicago Heights School District. I graduated from Northern Illinois University with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I then attended Governors State University and received a Masters Degree in Special Education. I recently completed the English as a Second Language program through American College of Education receiving my ESL endorsement. 

I love teaching Pre-K!  I enjoy working with young children and watching them grow, learn, and develop skills throughout the school year. I want your child's first school experience to be fun and exciting!

Our classroom is in Room 2 at Highland School. The Room 2 team consists of Ms. Kelly (teacher) , Ms. Nancy (assistant), Ms. Beth (assistant) , and Ms. Latonya (assistant in the PM class). We are here to make sure your child has a positive learning experience!
