Jill Whitaker

Hello!  I am Jill Whitaker.   I am excited to start back to school and get to know my students!  I hope you feel the same way.

This is my thirty-fourth year of teaching.  I taught Kindergarten for two years at North Clinton.  I taught First Grade at South Clinton for nineteen years. I then worked at Clinton, South Clinton, and North Clinton for four years in reading and math intervention.  This is my ninth year back in first grade and I am having a blast.

I became a teacher because I love working with young people, like you, and I wanted a job where I could play on the swings every now and then.  I went to Carson-Newman College to become a teacher.  Then, I went to Tennessee Tech to get my masters degree.  I later attended several courses to become a reading interventionist.  I live here in Clinton with my two children, Sam and Sophie.  Sam is a sophomore at Tennessee Tech. Sophie is a freshman at the University of Tennessee.  We also have two dogs named Luna and Remy and a cat named Daisy.
