My name is Jenna, and I have found my home in third grade for the past 4 years. I absolutely love this age. The students are so eager to learn, and I am eager to teach them. My favorite subjects to teach are ELA and writing.
I find that I am a very hands, visual learner and this directly relates to my teaching style. My students actively engage in a variety of hands on activities to make learning fun and enjoyable.

I say that I have found my home in the third grade classroom because that is where my heart is. I have a degree in nursing but find that my love is in teaching. I was always told, "Find something you love to do, and you will never work a day of your life." This statement rings true in teaching. When we strip away all of the extra "stuff" we are required to do, we are left with a classroom full of eager, innocent children. It is important to remember they are why we chose this profession. They will keep us grounded, eager to learn more ourselves, and will always make us present our best self in and out of the classroom.
