Hi, my name is Jamie Kneeland and I have been teaching first grade for 12 years. I have a 4 year old daughter-Caroline, a 4 month old-Josephine, and our first baby-our yellow lab-Walter.
I have always had a passion for traveling. My dream trip would be to travel to Peru and experience the beauty of Machu Picchu.
Bachelor's degree from Governor's State University
Masters degree from University of Saint Frances
Favorite Thing About Teaching:
There are so many reasons I love teaching. Every day is different, every second counts, and I learn something new every day! Being a teacher is a profoundly challenging and rewarding job. I wake up everyday smiling, knowing I can grow, influence a life, love a child, and love what I do.
My husband and I love to travel. Of course our traveling has taken a back burner since the kids, but we wouldn't have it any other way.
I'm actively involved in Project Sunshine- a program that visits pediatric patients in the hospital. I also am involved in Royal Family Kids Camp- a christian camp that mentors children in the foster care system.
My husband Christian and I have been married for 9 years. We have a daughter Caroline who is 4 and the newest addition to our family- Josephine. Caroline always tells everyone about her "puppy brother" Walter, who is our 11 year old yellow lab.
Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon
