Ms. Jacqueline Materna
Welcome back, Red Wings! I am Jacqueline Materna and I am so excited to be back for another great year in 5th Grade at the Ridge!
A little about me -- I was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, raised in Mechanicsville, Virginia and now I'm lived out in Ashburn, Virginia with my roommate who is also a 5th Grade teacher in LCPS! In May of 2018, I graduated from 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. Throughout 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 my free time with friends, listening to music, and exploring new parts of the world! I cannot wait to meet and get to know you all! I know we're gearing up for a great year and I look forward to working together with you all this year for another incredible year at Cardinal Ridge!
