My name is Jolene Harris and I am a 3rd grade teacher at MAE. I graduated from Eastern Washington University, double majoring in Elementary Education K-8 and Special Education K-12. I taught 4th grade in Battle Ground School District before moving here to Medical Lake. This is my second year of teaching and I still love it! My classroom demonstrates my heart for Disney and each student in my class gets to become a Mouseketeer, as well as a MAE Eagle.
In 3rd grade our literacy program covers some fun and engaging topics. Module one we learn about different countries and explore their learning challenges and how they overcome them. Module two we cover research on Frogs and their adaptations. Module three's topic is literary classics, focusing on JM Barrie's Peter Pan novel. The last topic is in Module four on water.
