Jill grew up in Washington, Missouri and is proud of the fact that her family is one of Washington’s original 12 families. She has been at St. Gertrude for 22 years, teaching everything from preschool to third grade. Jill went to Central Methodist College and earned her Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education. She received her Master’s degree in Elementary Education from Southwest Baptist University.
When Jill is not enjoying her passion of teaching second graders, she has many other interests. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, catching a Broadway play, jigsaw puzzles, and curling up with a good book. She is a VERY avid Blues fan. She is often seen out and about with her adorable dachshund, Herman.
