Mrs. Jeannie Tallent

The 2023-24 school year is the start of my twenty-seventh year of teaching and my tenth year at Trailside Middle School!  During my career, I have had wonderful times teaching fifth, sixth, and eighth graders. This year is especially exciting for me as I am making the switch from teaching English to science!  I love cultivating curiosity about the world and can't wait to inspire future scientists.

I graduated from James Madison University earning a bachelor’s of arts degree, as well as a master’s of education degree.  I bleed Purple every Saturday in the fall. Go Dukes! I have a tight-knit family that loves football, big dogs, and Smith Mountain Lake.  We enjoy spending time outside with family and friends. We are constantly on the go and looking for our next adventure.

I can’t wait for another new year at Trailside Middle School!
