Mrs. Kelly Jacobson
Hello! I am Mrs. Kelly Jacobson. In the classroom the students call me Ms. Kelly. I am the Pre-Kindergarten teacher at Washington-McKinley School in Room 14. I have been a Pre-K teacher in the Chicago Heights School District for 14 years.
Ms. Lucy Leal, the bilingual assistant, joins me in the classroom working with your child.
I have acquired a Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education from Northern Illinois University. I also have acquired a Masters Degree in Special Education from Governors State University, as well as an English as a Second Language (ESL) endorsement from American College of Education.
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 their first school experience to be fun and exciting.
