Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Kindergarten!
Hello! My name is Jessica Pack and I am very excited to be the new kindergarten teacher at Waterford Elementary School. Although this is my first year at Waterford, it is my tenth year teaching in Loudoun County. I have a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from Oswego State University of New York and a Masters Degree in Reading Education from the Universtity of Virginia. My son, Danny, is a seventh grader at Blue Ridge Middle School and my daughter, Hailey, is a fifth grader at Liberty Elementary School where my husband, Paul, is the principal.
Kindergarten is such an exciting year, full of new experiences both academically and socially. We will be learning to read and write, of course, but we will also learn many math skills such as creating graphs, identifying coins and even addition and subtraction. We will be studying famous people such as George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, Jr. as well as Science topics such as animal and plant life cycles, magnets and recycling. We will also be meeting new friends, practicing thinking and problem solving skills and learning to work together with partners and groups.
