Mrs. J. True

When I walk into my classroom each day, my purpose is to ignite and nurture a love of learning in my students. This often includes movement with music, singing, dancing, chants and cheers as I teach second grade standards.  I believe that with modeling and guidance to practice the 8 Habits for Happy Kids, each student can be a proactive leader of their learning and reach their academic and personal goals! I rejoice in my students' diversity and am committed to creating a caring, encouraging, and kind classroom culture. 

This school year's school theme is, "Wild About Learning"! We will put our best selves forward and be forever learners and achievers.  I have the honor of working with an amazing teacher, Mrs.Mitchell. She will teach our homeroom students Math and Science and I will teach Reading, Writing, and Social Studies.  Together, with the Second Grade Team, we plan to make this year an extra special, learning adventure!

A bit about me. I was born and educated in New York.  Degrees and certifications in Psychology (Child/Adolescent), Elementary Education, English Language Learners, and Reading. Florida has been my home for over 30 years. Mr. True and I are empty-nesters as our two daughters have their careers in other states. When I am not at SJE, I am traveling to see my parents, siblings, daughters, friends, and new places. In addition to traveling, I enjoy finding great books to read to my students, cooking and having dinner parties, playing traditional board games, watching our west coast sunsets, and creative thinking projects.
