Mrs. Jeanne Ward

Welcome to my classroom!!!!! My name is Jeanne Ward.  I have been a first-grade teacher at Brookhill for 11 years.  I am very excited about the new school year.  

I have been married to my wonderful husband, Miles, for 29 years this August 13.  We have 4 wonderful children and a wonderful son-in-law.  Justin, Hannah, Nic, Harper and Ashley (twins).  Justin and Hannah graduated from The University of Alabama and both have awesome jobs that they love.  The twins are attending Auburn University and will be Jr. this fall. My son-in-law, Nic, is in Medical School at UAB.  He graduated from Auburn.  As you can see we have a mixed family.  My husband graduated from Alabama and I graduated from Auburn - WAR EAGLE!!!!!

I have been teaching for 16 years.  I have taught 2nd grade, Kindergarten but my love is first.  It is so exciting to watch those littles ones change over the course of a year.  They learn to read and start see the world through reading, technology, and experiments we do during the year.  They are very eager and excited to learn new things.

I attended Auburn University and received a degree in Nutrition and Foods.  I worked in the food industry for a year and realized that was not for me.  I returned home, Fayette, Al, and commuted to the University of Alabama where I recieved my BS in Early Childhood/Elementary Education.  Last year, a group of friends and I started working on our Masters in Elementary Education through the University of West Alabama.  We finished this summer and are very proud to be finished.  I am a certified Orton Gillingham instructor and have a very strong passion for children with Dyslexia.
