Mrs. Jessica B. Silvey

I am so happy to have your child in my classroom this year!  I believe that parents are a child’s first and most important teacher; so I value your opinion and knowledge very much.  If you ever have a question or concern, please contact me.  I am looking forward to getting to know you all, and especially getting to know your children.  

I would like to give you a little background information about myself:  I was born and raised in Chester.  I attended Chester County schools and graduated salutatorian of my class from Chester Senior High School in 2001.  I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education from Lander University in May 2005.  I graduated with a Master’s of Education in Curriculum and Instruction in Technology from Grand Canyon University in February 2011.  I am married to a PE teacher, and we have one little boy, Lucas, who will turn 4 in October.

This is my twelfth year teaching, but it will be my first year teaching in Union County.  I taught at Chester Park Center of Literacy through Technology in Chester from August 2005-May 2016.  During my first six years of teaching I was teaching first grade, and this will be my sixth year in kindergarten!  Kindergarten is the grade that I did my student teaching in, and it has a special place in my heart!  Because I have first grade experience, I know exactly what I need to teach your children to have them ready for first grade next year.  I believe that teaching is my calling and I am extremely excited to be able to teach your child this year! 

I am very excited to be working with Mrs. Michelle Alexander this year.  Mrs. Michelle is married with three children.  She also has three precious grandchildren.  Mrs. Michelle has been working with children since 2001, and she is going to be a great asset to our students and our classroom.

If you have any specific questions and/or concerns, you can contact me by the following methods: 

1.  Write me a note and send it to school with your child.

2. E-mail me at jsilvey@union.k12.sc.us.

3. Call me at the school (429-1737) between 8:50-9:35am, or 3:00-3:30pm.

 

Sincerely,

Mrs. Jessica B. Silvey
