2nd Grade Teacher

Hi! My name is Mrs. Jenkins, and this is my 7th year to teach 2nd grade. I LOVE 2ND GRADERS!!!!! I am EXCITED that you are going to be part of our class! We will learn oodles this year and have tons of fun in the process. I cannot wait to get to know all about YOU, but I want to go ahead and tell you a little about me.

I was born in Austin, Texas, and was raised in Giddings (about 50 miles east of Austin). My younger brother, Chad, and I grew up in the country raising cattle and participating in 4-H. After I graduated, I went to school at Texas A&M. I LOVE THE AGGIES---WHOOP!!! I graduated from A&M in 2002 and married my husband, Ronnie, a few months later.

My first job was teaching first grade in Waller, Texas. It was that year that I realized I was doing exactly what God had created me to do! A year later, we moved to Seminole, Texas, where I taught Pre-K for a year and a half until I had my first son, Drew. Our next move took us to Levelland, where we lived for six years and added our son, Kade, to the family. I stayed home with my boys until 2010, when I joined the staff at Levelland Christian School to teach Kindergarten.

We moved to Childress in April of 2011. My husband graduated from CHS in 1994 and his family lives here, so we are so glad to be “HOME”!!! Go BOBCATS!!!

When I am not teaching or planning awesome things for us to do at school…I enjoy reading, going to the pool, watching Drew and Kade play sports, running, talking to my friends, teaching kids at C.H.A.M.P.S on Wednesday nights, and spending time with my family on our land north of town.
