Hello, my name is Jenny James and I am very happy to have your child in my kindergarten classroom this year. I would like to take this time to introduce myself.
I grew up in the great state of West Virginia. I graduated from The University of Charleston with my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. After that I went on to receive my Masters’ Degree from Marshall University in Special Education.
I began teaching at the elementary level in 2002 in Charleston, WV. I came to the state of Florida in early 2009 and began teaching in the Charlotte County school system. I was named Charlotte County teacher of the year in 2017.
