•      Hi! My name is Ms. Jewell and I am so excited to be teaching Kindergarten this year.  Most importantly, I am thrilled to be your child's teacher.  It is going to be a fun year full of learning and adventures.

         I am looking forward to getting to know your child, but first I am going to tell you a few things about me.

         I was born and raised in Maryland and I graduated from Notre Dame of Maryland University.  I have been teaching with Marion County Public Schools for five years.  I love animals and I recently rescued a mother cat and her three little kittens.

         This year I will spend time encouraging positive social interactions among students and helping them to become more independent during the school year.  This will be a year of academic growth for your child as they become early readers and writers.  We will build on our math skills and explore a variety of topics in science and social studies.

         This is going to be an exciting time for you and your child as they become life-long learners.
