Hello!  My name is Jennifer Giaconia and I am thrilled to have you in my class this year.  This is my fifteenth year of teaching, and my fifth year at Elms.  Here I've taught 3rd grade for two years and I'm ready to start my third year in 4th grade with you!  Previously, I worked at two different public schools in Bergen County where I taught 1st grade, 2nd grade, and 3rd grade.  My husband and I relocated from northern New Jersey, and three years ago we welcomed our daughter, Emily.  We enjoy spending time with our dog Belle, going out for ice cream, and living so close to the beach that we can go anytime during the year.  I am so happy to be part of the Jackson School District and I'm excited to be spearheading our school's NEW Kindness Club this year.  I am looking forward to a fantastic year ahead of us!
