Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Shikha Jain
I very excited to start my third year teaching 3rd Grade at AES!
Here's a brief outline about me:
I live in South Riding with my husband and my daughter is freshman at Virginia Tech this year. In my spare time I like reading, going outdoors and love traveling to new places.
I started my teaching life as a preschool teacher and soon realized that teaching was more than just a job or career for me! I have loved every day of school since then and have dedicated over 20 years to the field of education.
I have a Masters in Education from Manchester Metropolitan University, and I earned my Teaching Certificate from University of Sunderland, UK. My teaching philosophy has evolved over the years and is shaped by the varied experiences that I've had. Working in different countries and teaching different curriculums has enriched my teaching life a lot.
Last year, I got trained to teach the Reading and the Writing Units of Study and have earned the Project Based Learning Certification.
I believe in instilling strong academic skills and helping students realize and grow their own potentials.
I am looking forward to getting to meet you and welcoming my new friends into another exciting year at AES!
