My name is Emily Jacobs and I have had the pleasant opportunity to serve CUSD#1 as a Kindergarten teacher for 25 years. I grew up in Charleston and attended Eastern Illinois University where I have earned my Master's Degree in Reading. I have a passion for working with young learners and especially enjoy teaching children how to read and write. I have three children, Ellie, Audrey and Nate. I have one Mini Bernedoodle dog named Maggie and one Himilayan cat named Reno. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love watching my children's sporting events, traveling, hiking, kayaking, and watching a good Netflix series. I am looking forward to having the opportunity to teach your child this year!
