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.
