Ms. Jacqueline Materna

Hi! Welcome to 5th Grade!


My name is Jacqueline Materna and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the Cardinal Ridge team! I was born in Philadelphia, but my family soon relocated to Mechanicsville, Virginia and I’ve been there ever since. I am a recent graduate of Penn State University (We Are!) where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood and Elementary Education and a minor in Human Development and Family Studies.


During my time at Penn State, I had the pleasure of having many interactive, instructional courses that allowed me to pop into different classrooms with different age groups of students. My passion for teaching spreads far beyond just my joy of being surrounded by and helping others. My hopes are to help spark and allow others to find their passion within themselves!  


Outside of the world of teaching, I enjoy spending most of my free time with friends, listening to music, and taking in the joys of the outdoors! I cannot wait to meet and get to know you all! Also, if you ever have any questions, concerns, or ideas, please feel free to reach out to me at


I look forward to working together with you all this year for an incredible year at Cardinal Ridge Elementary!
