Degrees and Certifications:
I’m Jaimi Hecht. This is my fourth-year teaching in Loudoun County. I have spent the last three years teaching 4th grade at John W Tolbert Elementary School and I am so excited to be joining your galaxy of stars on the 5th grade team at Fredrick Douglass this year!
I was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia before moving to Clarke County to begin my teaching career. I attended Virginia Commonwealth University where I earned my bachelor's degree in Disciplinary Studies with a focus on Early and Elementary Education and a master's in Education. I love being outside in all capacities. My favorite activities are hula hooping, going to live music, hiking and traveling. Family has always been the most important part of my life and I am looking forward to creating our classroom family this year! I believe every student brings a unique piece to build our classroom community. I love to keep positivity in the classroom and always focus on a growth mindset. Together we can do anything. Please feel free to email me with any likes, dislikes, or concerns for this upcoming year! I want to ensure every student feels safe and heard in the classroom.
