Ms. Jaster

Welcome back to school!! 

My name is Marie Jaster and this will be my first year teaching second grade and I am beyond excited! I moved down to North Carolina back in May to be with my fiance who is in the service. I was born and raised in Michigan, where I went to Eastern Michigan University to get an Elementary Education degree. Back at home, I lived with my mom, dad, and twin sister. Fun fact, my mom and sister also work in schools! My mom teachers STEM classes at the middle school level and my sister is a first year social worker at a high school :) While I do miss home very much, I am super excited to be here and to finally start my teaching career. I believe teaching and working with kids is my life-given passion and there is nothing I love more than seeing children succeed and have fun while doing it! Another interesting thing about me is that I grew up teaching and assisting at a dance studio where I taught all different genres of dance, to all kinds of age groups! Teaching at the studio and being with the kids is what made me realize that teaching is something I want to do every day and to continue to learn more and more. I cannot wait for us to have a great year together! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if there are any questions, comments, or concerns. I want us all to feel safe, heard, and that we feel our students are well cared for.
