Welcome to First Grade!
Welcome to Room 9! We are going to have a great year! I am Mrs. Jenna Lombardo, and I am starting my 6th year teaching 1st grade here at Pinebrook. I previously taught 1st grade in Las Vegas. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in History and Political Science from The College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY. I earned my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.I have been married to my wonderful husband, Leo, for 22 years. His Air Force career took us to Alaska, Colorado, Nevada, and here to Virginia prior to his retirement from Active Duty. Now we call beautiful Loudoun County home! We live about 10 minutes from Pinebrook. Leo works for a government contractor by day. He perfects his smoked pork recipe by night. Our older son, Savey ("Say-vee"), is 15. He is in 10th grade at Champe. Our younger son, Jonah, is 13. He is in 7th grade at Mercer. Both Savey and Jonah are Pinebrook graduates! :)My classroom is one of my favorite places to be! When I'm not at school, I like to read, exercise, drink coffee, and follow teacher blogs. I am always tinkering with something for my classroom.I am excited to share 1st grade with you as we get to know each other!
