Miss Jacqueline Materna
Welcome back to another inCREdible school year, Red Wings! I am Miss Jacqueline Materna and I am SO excited to be back for my fourth year in fifth grade at Cardinal Ridge!
I spent most of my childhood growing up in Mechanicsville, Virginia (right outside of Richmond) and made my move to Northern Virginia right after college. I am a 2018 graduate from Penn State University - We Are! Throughout my time at Penn State, I had the pleasure of having many interactive and 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, you can find me spending my time with close friends and family, as well as exploring parts of the world with my beautiful pup, Vienna! I cannot wait to meet and get to know you all throughout our time together this year. Let's make this year the best one yet!
If you ever have any questions, concerns, or ideas, please feel free to reach out to me!
