Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Beth Jaques
I am so excited to be your child’s first grade teacher! In my 28 years of teaching experience, I have taught every elementary grade except for kindergarten. First grade is my absolute favorite! First graders tell you like it is and they are like sponges wanting to learn and grow!
I am originally from New York. I attended SUNY Cortland and graduated from SUNY Plattsburgh with a BS degree in Elementary Education. I have taught in New York, Vermont and Virginia. I married a Marine 35 years ago and we have lived up and down the east coast, including Cuba! We have 3 children who are all are all out of the house, leaving my husband and I with an empty nest! We are loving this time in our lives and are enjoying our golden named Ollie and our first grandchild, McMartin.
I believe children learn best by using manipulatives, playing games, teaching their peers, and most of all having fun! My goal is to build a classroom community where all feel safe to learn at their pace and to be the best they can be. Thank you for your support!
