Mrs. Jaska

Wow, this is my 31st year as a teacher. I taught for ten years in Illinois before moving to Allen. I was a stay-at home mom for five years before returning to the classroom.  I started back teaching kindergarten at Bolin Elementary. After four years,I had the opportunity to loop up to first grade with my class. That was an amazing experience. I taught first grade for seven years. My last seven years at Bolin I taught SSI (intervention).   This experience gave me an opportunity to work with grades K-6.  Now I am loving being a dyslexia therapist here at Preston.

I have an amazing husband and two grown boys.  We have lived in Allen for 26 years.  My boys graduated from Allen High School and went to college in the Texas area.  We love to travel together and have been to many amazing places.  I love to run and have run over 40 half marathons and 2 marathons. 

I am excited about this school year.  The learning I see from my students warms my heart.  Some days are hard but we power through and work hard to make reading easier.
