Welcome to second grade! My name is Mrs. J. Yes, I do have a much longer last name but it is too complicated to say every time you need my attention! So Mrs. J it is. I am so excited to be on the Room 33 team with you! Together with Mrs. Sanders (your other teacher) we are going to have an amazing year representing the Arizona Wildcats from U of A!!!
I hold a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and History from Lake Forest College in Chicago, Illinois. I have a second Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Arizona State. Additionally, I earned my Masters of Education degree from Arizona State in 2017.
This is my third year teaching second grade and my third year at Adams! I love this grade and all of the cool things we get to learn. My favorite subject to teach is history as I believe our future always lies in the memories of our past!
I have been married to my husband, Lubko, for three years. I also just gave birth to my first daughter, Hailey, in May of 2017 and have decided that being a mom is the greatest job on the planet! My family is originally from Northern California, but I have lived all over the country including California, Nevada, Illinois and Arizona.
Why Room 33 Rocks:
Since becoming a mom I have started sharing a classroom with the wonderful Mrs. Sanders. We both love teaching and make a great team! Sometimes when you come to class you will see me and sometimes you will see Ms. Sanders. But do not worry, we always keep each other in the loop!
