Welcome Mrs.Jalil's 2nd grade website
My name is Reba Jalil, and I am excited to be teaching 2nd grade at Marion!
I am from Minden, Lousiana but I moved to the Dallas area 22 years ago. I taught 8th grade in Dallas and 1st and 5th grade in Farmers Branch. When we moved to Allen 18 years ago I became a substitute teacher and then I taught 1st grade at Reed Elementary. I decided to be a stay at home mom for several year, but I got back into teaching about 6 years ago. I have been a substitute teacher and an SSI tutor for reading and math. Last year I was a long term substitute at Marion and I am thrilled to be a part of the 2nd grade team this year.
I graduated for Louisiana State University with a B.S. in Elementary Education. I am a certified teacher for grades 1st-8th. I am also ESL and Gifted certified.
My husband and I have been married for 18 years, and we have three children. We love attending our basketball games and plays to see our children.
I am looking forward to a great school year!
