Ms. Mary Jamison
Welcome to Falkener Elementary! My name is Mary Jamison and I am so excited to be teaching 3rd grade this year. Being prepared to teach has been a life long adventure for me. My undergraduate degree was earned from South Carolina State University - Business Administration with focus in Accounting. For 26 years, my profession was in Banking and Finance. Throughout my corporate career, I worked 14 years with Bank of America financing Automobile Loans and another 12 years with Volvo Financial Services here in Greensboro North Carolina financing Tractor Trailers. After many years in Corporate America, I decided it was time for me to make a difference in young peoples lives. So, I decided to go back to school and earned a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Grand Canyon University. I have been teaching now for the pass 6 years and I LOVE IT! Our school has implemented Clubs and Pods this year as extra-curricular activities. I am a member of the GREEN POD! GO GREEN!
My Favorite Quote: "Students don't care how much you know until they know how much you care"
The 3rd graders that walk through these doors will KNOW that I care about them whole heartedly. Trust will be one of our favorite words this year. My students will know the expectations in our classroom and what they can expect from me as a teacher. Students will be responsible for setting some of the goals/expect ions for themselves as a class and as individual students. I believe students should be participants in their education not spectators.
