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-seven 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 eighth grader at Clinton Middle) and Sophie (a seventh grader at Clinton Middle).  We have no pets at this time, but the kids want one.

We went on a cruise for our summer vacation.  We went with some friends and had a great time.  The rest of the summer has been spent at home and sight seeing around Tennessee.

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
