Mrs. Jamalyn Jaquess
Hello, and thanks for stopping by! I'm "Mrs. J" and I am thrilled to be teaching 4th grade at Vineyard Ranch! I have been married to Mr. J for 24 years and we have three children - Natalie, who is a new teacher/coach at Eisenhower Middle School, Cort, who is a sophomore studying business and playing football (#57) at UT, and Seth, who is entering his senior year at Churchill and also plays football (#99). My family, my faith, and my football teams are my outside-of-work passions!!
I grew up in San Antonio and Helotes, and, ultimately, graduated from the University of Alabama at Birmingham with a degree in English Literature, after marrying Mr. J and moving to be with him. I stayed home with my children until 7 years ago, when I obtained my teaching certificate and began this fun journey! We breed Labradoodles for a fun and furry side job, and my students are sure to be kept up to date with our puppies.
I am committed to helping my students become the best version of who they were created to be!
