Mrs. Jamie Staats
Let me introduce myself. My name is Jamie Staats and I am a new 1st grade teacher at Bolin this year. This will marks my 15th year in education. I have taught pre-k, Kindergarten, 1st grade(sped), 2nd grade(sped and gen ed) and PPCD. I have a very strong background in both gen ed and special education. All throughout college I was a speech and occupational therapy tech and my family currently owns Reeves Rehab in San Angelo, Texas. I am triple certified with General Education, ESL and Special Education certifications. My mother would say I was born to be a teacher and I would have to agree!
I am originally from a VERY small town outside of San Angelo, Texas called Christoval. After high school I went on to play basketball at Sul Ross State University and then later graduated from Angelo State University in 2005. I have taught in Killeen ISD, Plano ISD, Dallas ISD, Lovejoy ISD and now I get to add Allen ISD to the list.
My husband and I just had our first child, Austin. He is 20 months old and is the light of our life. We have been very blessed because he is usually happy and smiling all the time. I can't wait for yall to meet him! In my free time I love to hang out with my family and friends. We like to play all kinds of games and we are all pretty competitive. My husband and I also love to go out to eat and take trips when we can find the time. I am so happy to be a Bolin Blazer this year and get to know all of you!
