My name is Jacquelyn Lowell. I am a native to Arizona and consider myself a homegrown Mesa girl. I graduated from Brigham Young University in 1991. I taught one year of second grade at a year-round school in Orem, Utah. It was too cold in Utah for my blood, so I moved back to sunny Arizona. I was a site-based substitute for a year at Johnson and Porter Elementary. I was known as the “Six-foot Sub” and you will find out why when you meet me.
I taught fifth grade for two years at Irving Elementary before transferring over to Stevenson Elementary to teach another five years. I graduated with my Masters degree from Northern Arizona University in 1996. In 1998 I had the privilege of being awarded a Silver Apple Teacher award from Channel 3 and Motorola.
In 2000, I decided to take a personal leave of absence from teaching and moved to Arlington, Virginia. I wanted to expand my skills and experiences to better understand the business world and see the historical sites of our nation. Overall, it was a great experience and my love for American history has increased so much that I can’t wait to share it with you. I have also had the opportunity to tour Northern and Southern Europe by bus and boat. I have many pictures and books to show you about US and world history.
I returned to Arizona and had the opportunity to teach fifth grade at Mendoza for three years. During my fourth year I moved up to teach sixth grade and had a wonderful experience spending another year with my students. It has given me a better understanding of where I need to get you so that you will be successful in sixth grade. I have a state endorsement in ESL and reading tests and techniques.
I was at Falcon Hill for seven years teaching fifth grade and the 4/5th combo class. Looking for a new challenge, I moved to Johnson Elementary and taught my last year of fifth grade. I have taught third grade for the last five years and I loved it. We had an awesome time learning cursive writing and mulitplication times tables. :) I look forward to another year. . . .
