Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Melody Jefferson
Greetings! My name is Melody Jefferson and I am a 5th grade teacher here at Jury Elementary. This year will be my 24th year in education. I have taught first grade through 7th grade and have also served as an instructional coach (however, 5th grade is my FAVORITE!). My undergraduate degree is in elementary education, with an emphasis in ELA and American history. My master’s degree is in public administration and policy analysis. These certificates allow me to administer information in a way that students can digest and use the data collected from their work to guide my instruction and track student progress. By establishing a safe and valued learning environment, my students are encouraged to grow socially and academically without limits. I am looking so forward to an AWESOME year!
