I am excited to be teaching Reading, Writing, and Social Studies in fourth grade at Preston this year! Writing has always been my passion. I am co-teaching with Mrs. Morgan so she will teach my homeroom Math and Science in the morning while I teach her class Reading, Writing, and Social Studies. I'm excited to meet my new Preston families, please let me know if you have any questions. Most parent communication will be through either daily agendas or email newsletters. Graded student work will come home in Tuesday take-home folders.
A little bit about me; my family loves traveling! This summer we explored Italy. We visited the ruins in Pompeii, saw the Amalfi coast, Rome, Florence, and Milan. Of course, we saw the Leaning Tower of Pisa as well! Last year we explored Barcelona, Spain and went on a Disney Cruise to the Bahamas. We've fed pandas in Atlanta, seen Broadway shows in New York City, laid on Jamaican beaches, visited Paris and explored London by underground. My oldest daughter, Sunna, graduated in 2016 from Allen and is studying pre-med at UTD. My son, Zack, is a senior in the IB program at Allen High School and plays the cello. My youngest daughter, Sophie, will be at the new Freshman center. We have lived in Allen for over 20 years and love attending home football games! I’ve been a "PTA Mom” for a very long time and after substituting for 5 years in the district, I obtained my Teacher Certification and taught at Lindsey before coming to Preston.
Please feel free to contact me anytime through email at Jamie.Qureshi@allenisd.org. I am looking forward to a great year at Preston!
