TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hello Teachers! My name is Jillian, and I'm a 2nd grade teacher. I have been teaching 2nd grade for 4 years now. Before that, I've been a tutor, a substitute teacher, and a student myself! I love the classroom, and I love playing around on the computer. Creating useful tools is a knack that I have fallen into, and I might add-- it's rather fun! :)

MY TEACHING STYLE

Fun with boundaries! I'm sure after my team reads that, they'll disagree...somehow I've been tagged as the most strict in 2nd grade. I do, however, love my kiddos and love to have a good time! I enjoy everyday, and try to have fun in all lessons I teach!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Yet to be added

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies (just a fancy name for Education!) from the University of North Texas in 2009. I came back to my home town afterwards, and I've been teaching here ever since!
