Ms. Natalie Jaquess
Hello, I'm Ms. Jaquess (or Ms. J)! I am so excited to be a part of the Eisenhower family again for the third year! I am an avid football fan and pretty much love all things sports. I also love music and like to think that in another life I may have been a professional dancer. As a Churchill HS grad, I love that I get to teach future Chargers. When I am not teaching, I am usually spending time with friends and day dreaming about traveling abroad!
I believe that every child has a right to learn and that learning occurs best in an environment where students are respected, cared for, and held to a high standard. Teaching, to me, is a unique priviledge that I have the opportunity of stepping in to. Classroom culture is important to me and I make an effort to cultivate it with my students. It is my goal that at the end of the year, classmates feel more like family.
