My name is Jenny Edwards and I’m a member of the 2nd grade team here at Pacific Ridge Elementary.  We’re going to have a great year full of lots of learning and new adventures.  I am looking forward to seeing what the year has in store for us. 

I was born and raised in Seaside, Oregon.  I attended Gearhart Elementary School.  After graduating from Seaside High School, I moved to McMinnville, Oregon, to attend Linfield College.  Go Wildcats!  I graduated with my Master’s in Education from Western Oregon University.  I also have a Reading Endorsement and an ESOL Endorsement. 

I have had teaching experience in every grade Kindergarten through fifth, including teaching a year of Title I Reading and Math.  I absolutely love teaching 2nd grade---my favorite.  This will be my 19th year teaching, and I believe being a teacher is the best job in the world.  My focus is on developing a positive classroom culture and making a personal connection with each individual student.

I am married to an engineer and have two wonderful sons, Cullan and Julian, who are second graders this year.  They are identical twins who are almost eight years old.  I also have a daughter named Aria who will turn four in November.  She loves Peppa Pig, playing outdoors, and being active.  In my spare time, I enjoy family activities like hiking, swimming, watching my boys play sports, and doing art projects.
