Mrs. Jamalyn Jaquess
Hello, and thanks for stopping by! I'm "Mrs. J," and I am thrilled to be teaching 5th grade reading at Vineyard Ranch! I have been married to Mr. J for 28 years, and we have three children - Natalie, who went to DBU and is a teacher at Eisenhower Middle School; Cort, who played football for and graduated from UT, married his HS sweetheart, and is working for Charles Schwab; and Seth, who is studying communications and playing football (#47) at UIW. My family, my faith, my friends, my dogs, and my football teams are my outside-of-work passions!!
I grew up in San Antonio and Helotes and graduated from the University of Alabama at Birmingham with a degree in English Literature after marrying Mr. J and moving across states to be with him. I stayed home with our children until 11 years ago, when I obtained my teaching certificate and began this rewarding journey!
I am committed to helping my students become the best versions of who they were created to be!
