Hello!  My name is Jennifer Giaconia and I am thrilled to have you in my class this year.  This is my sixteenth year of teaching, and my sixth year at Elms.  Here I've taught 3rd grade for two years and I'm ready to start my fourth year in 4th grade with you!  Previously, I worked at two different public schools in northern New Jersey where I taught 1st grade, 2nd grade, and 3rd grade.  My husband, daughter, and I 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. I'm excited to be spearheading our school's Kindness Club with Ms. Vitale and FireSmart Club with Ms. Konopack this year.  I am looking forward to a fantastic year ahead of us!
