Mrs. Jenny Jarrett

Hello!  I am Jenny Jarrett, and I am very excited to be teaching you/your child’s math class at Athens High School!
I actually grew up in Athens.  I attended Athens Bible School.  After I graduated, I played softball for Calhoun Community College.  When I finished there, I attended the University of North Alabama for a short time, and then finished my degree at Athens State University.  I have two degrees in mathematics.  I have been teaching, at least part-time, since 2000.  I married Brian Jarrett.  We have three daughters.  All three are very active in sports, and I enjoy coaching volleyball and softball. So, if I’m not in the classroom, you can probably find me at a sporting event somewhere!
I love teaching math, and I love working with our students.  I feel that it is very important for the students to have a strong background in number sense and algebra.  Math is a subject that builds from year to year, so the groundwork and fundamentals are keys to success.  I hope that my students find that I am very patient and willing to work with them to make sure that they feel secure in their foundation.
