My experience with little kids started when I helped with Girl Scouts and Sunday School at my church. I also have numerous family members that worked in education that had a positive impact on my decision. I enjoy seeing the growth a child can make when given exposure and practice.  

My favorite hobby is spending time with my family. I am married and have 3 children. A few others things I enjoy are gardening, cooking, baking and watching any type true crime documentaries.

My grandmother, great aunts, and my mom are all teachers. It was something I always wanted to do because I saw how much my mom's students loved her and cared about her. I went to school for business but soon changed to elementary education because I wanted to do something that I knew I would love. 

I love watching movies, swimming in my pool, and trying new places to eat.

I've wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember.  I have always believed that to have a bright future, we need to encourage the younger generations to become good citizens and life long learners.  Teaching is important because it helps create all other professions.

I love to spend time with my family.  We enjoy playing games, watching movies, and going to new places together.  I love Social Studies/History, so travelling is one of my favorite things to do when I can.  I also enjoy cooking, crafting, and reading in my spare time.

Mrs. Jennifer Gaynor

I grew up wanting to be a teacher. Once my older brothers started school, I got excited about it and couldn't wait to go myself. Once I started kindergarten and got to enjoy it for myself, I decided I wanted to be a teacher. I pretended to be my teachers when I would play school at home. I just always knew that was what I would do when I grew up. Kindergarten is the best!    

I love spending time with my kids (who are now adults) - listening to our daughter sing in concerts, watching our son play college soccer, going out to dinner as a family to our favorite restaurants, and shopping! My chocolate lab, Millie, keeps me pretty busy too. But most of all, I just enjoy relaxing at home whenever I can.

I love teaching the younger students as it is the foundation to all the other grades to come. The students are eager to learn and soak up the material that is taught to them. I love seeing when the lightbulb goes off and the students understand and are grasping what is taught.

I enjoying relaxing at home with my family and dogs. I love going shopping and getting coffee at Starbucks.
