Degrees and Certifications:
Hello Parents and Students! My name is Jenna Roundtree, and I am thrilled to be teaching First Grade at Reed Elementary! I came to Reed 7 years ago from Wylie ISD where I worked in K-4 Intervention Services. I then taught Second Grade for 5 years and am excited to now be ROCKING in FIRST for the third year in a row!
I am a graduate of Louisiana State University, home of the LSU Fighting Tigers! In addition to my Elementary Education degree, I have degrees in both Mass Communication and Dance. I absolutely love writing, the arts, learning, and working with children. I was most definitely born to be a Teacher!
My goal as an educator is to cultivate responsible, lifelong, active learners with positive self-concepts. I strive each day to make learning a fun, engaging, nurturing, and purposeful process for each of my wonderful students.
I was born and raised in the rural town of Texarkana, Texas with my brother Josh who is 3 years younger than me. My parents Mark and Karen still live there and think it is the best town in the world. Did you know that Texarkana sits in both Texas AND Arkansas? Pretty cool, huh? I moved to Frisco, Texas in 2007 where I worked as a professional dancer and dance instructor until 2012. I now live there with my husband Justin and daughters Claire (5) and Jolie (3), and our son Tate (1)! We also have a chihuahua dog named Missy! My students will undoubtedly hear me talk about my family quite a bit throughout the year!
I am so honored to have the opportunity to teach, love, and inspire children. I am so passionate about the work that I do and try to cherish the many joys of working with kids every single day.
