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 sixth year! I am an avid football fan and love pretty much all things sports and competition. 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 typically found 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 privilege 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.
Important Things to Know!
Thursday and Friday Mornings: 7:50-8:15
Monday Afternoons: 3:45-4:15
2 main rules: Work hard and be nice. If we are striving for these two, most issues resolve themselves.
Students are required to have a journal that they keep in class. ELAR students should bring a book to class every day. Books can be checked out at the library before school, after school, and occasionally during lunches.
Grades are calculated 60% daily work, 40% projects and assessments.
The best way to get in touch with me is through email! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I will also be using Remind periodically throughout the year to send out important updates. If you have not already signed up, use the following codes to sign up for the correct class by texting the code to 81010:
