Miss Jacqueline Materna
Welcome back, Red Wings! I am Jacqueline Materna and I am SO incredibly excited to be back for my third year in fifth grade at Cardinal Ridge!
I spent most of my childhood growing up in Mechanicsville, Virginia, right outside of Richmond, and now I am currently in Ashburn, Virginia with my roommate, who also teaches fifth grade over at Goshen Post Elementary School! I graduated from Penn State University (We Are!) back in May of 2018! 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, 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!
If you ever have any questions, concerns, or ideas, please feel free to reach out to me!
