My name is Jill Whitaker.  I am one of the four first grade teachers at Clinton Elementary Schools.  I have worked in the Clinton City Schools System for twenty-eight years.  I taught Kindergarten at North Clinton, then First Grade at South Clinton, Reading Intervention at all three schools, and now first grade again at Clinton.

I have two children, Sam (a ninth grader at Clinton High) and Sophie (a eighth grader at Clinton Middle).  We have a new puppy named Luna. 

We had a great summer and summer vacation.  I hope you did too.

I am excited to start a new school year!  Sam and Sophie also excitied, but they keep it well hidden.  I can not wait to see my old friends from last year and make many new friends.  I hope you are excited too! 

If you would like to tell me about your summer, please send me a letter.  Just mail it to:  Mrs. Jill Whitaker, Clinton Elementary School, 210 N. Hicks St., Clinton, TN  37716
