About Me...

 Staff Photo

Hi, my name is Jamie Kneeland and I have been teaching first grade for 12 years.  I have a 3 year old daughter named Caroline and a yellow lab named 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.

Quick Facts...

Graduated From:

Bachelor's degree from Governor's State University

Masters degree from University of Saint Frances

Years Teaching:

Twelve

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.

 What other job would give me the opportunity to play at recess, build things in class, and encourage imagination?

Hobbies:

My husband and I love traveling and exploring new things.  Some places I have visited are France, Germany, Japan, China, South Korea, and London.  Up next is Mykonos Island next year!

Family:

I have a daughter Caroline who is 3.  She keeps me very busy!  She always tells everyone about her "puppy brother" Walter, who is our 8 year old yellow lab.

Favorite Book:

Anything by James Patterson
