Hi! My name is Jessica Dowda, I am excited to be your child's second grade teacher this year! I am a recent graduate of Kennesaw State University where I received a Bachelor degree in Early Childhood Education. This is my second year teaching at Youngs Grove and I hope to experience many more years here in the future.
I have been married to my husband Nick for 7 years and we have two wonderful little boys, Jayden and Russ.
My Educational Philosophy: I believe that every child should have the chance to believe in themselves and to feel successful throughout their educational career. I feel that with positive reinforcements every child will have the opportunity to grow both academically and personally. By creating a classroom environment in which students feel that they are an important part of the daily procedures students will be more eager to learn.
Thank you for sharing your child with me this year. I look forward to working with them and you as well.
