Hello and Welcome! My name is Jennifer Gibson and I have the pleasure of being the newest member of the second grade team here at Irving Elementary. I was a third grade teacher at Irving last year and had a wonderful team!! Now I am a part of a wonderful team in second grade!! I graduated from Northern Arizona University with a Masters in Elementary Education with an Structured English Immersion endorsement. Prior to teaching, I spent twenty-three years in the banking industry and received business degrees from Penn State University as well as Arizona State University. Given how much I love the profession and working with the students, I should have become a teacher long ago!!
I believe that every child can succeed every day, even if the success is small. My classroom is designed to be a respectful, focused and caring environment where the students understand that we have fun only after our work is done. Watching a student's eyes light up when they understand a concept they have struggled with is the main reason I became a teacher. I am dedicated to my students and help guide them so that their inner light can shine bright!
