Jefferson Elementary | Second Grade

Hi! My name is Jennifer Paul and I am a kindergarten teacher at Jefferson Elementary.  I have been teaching kindergarten for 5 years at Jefferson.  Before this I taught preschool at both Jefferson and Head Start for a total of 11 years.  After graduating from North Platte High School, I attended and graduated from Mid-Plains Community College.  I then moved to Kearney and attended UNK where I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in elementary education with an endorsement in early childhood.  Within the past few years I have furthered my love and believe in early learning by going back to school and obtaining a Masters in early childhood education.

My husband Steve and I have been married for 13 years and have 2 wonderful daughters, Aarelyn and Bethany.  We are kept busy in dance, gymnastics, church, Girl Scouts, and soccer and though we are busy, we wouldn’t trade it for anything!  As a family we also enjoy camping, kayaking, and traveling.  

Educational success for me is more than learning academics, but about becoming a person of good character and I hope to display what that looks like to my students and all those that I work with.  I believe that being a teacher is more than a job, more than a profession.  It is an opportunity.  It is an opportunity for me to give back to my community, to give back what I received as a student, and most importantly it is an opportunity to serve in the area that God has called me for.
