About Me...

 Staff Photo

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.

Quick Facts...

Graduated From:

Bachelor's degree from Governor's State University

Masters degree from University of Saint Frances

Years Teaching:

Fourteen

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.

 

Hobbies:

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.

Family:

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.

Favorite Book:

Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon
