Mrs. Jennifer McCord

Hello parents and students.

I am Mrs. McCord and I will be the K-1 ASD general curriculum teacher. I am really looking forward to meeting you and teaching your children. 

I will be using DOJO as my communication platform and this will be the best way to reach me for updates, questions or comments about your child. Once we are up and running, I will send you an invitation, either through your Phone number( if you have text) or through your email, to join DOJO. This will allow you to view how your children are doing academically and behaviorally ( we use the point system that will indicate what your students are earning points for E.G. - working hard, on-task etc). Dojo is a great way for  teachers and families to communicate and it serves as a platform for uploading pictures and school work that your children are doing throughout the day. 

We are a PBIS school (School-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports)  which is a multi-tiered framework that allows our students the opportunity improve and maintain positive social, emotional, behavioral and academic outcomes for our school culture.

We also support the BIG 3. These are the Anthony Elementary School wide Expectations: Do what's right, Do your Best, Treat others as you would like to be treated.

This school year is starting off with some challenges that we have never faced before, but i feel confident in my abilities as a teacher and in the love and dedication of my parents. With a positive mindset and a can-do attitude, we will get through these challenging times with flying colors.

We are still working on our day to day schedule of classes and I am creating a supply list for some much needed items.  I will update my webpage when I have more information to share.

If more in-depth conversation is needed and DOJO is not the appropriate platform, you can reach me at 352-671-6000. If I am teaching when you call, you will go to VM and i will return your call within the day.

you may also email me. My email is

I look forward to meeting you all and being your children's teacher.  We are going to have a great year parents and I can't wait to get started!
