Hello! My name is Jamie Staats and I am the new 2nd grade Sped teacher for Lovejoy Elementary. This will be my 14th year of teaching. I have taught pre-k, Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade and PPCD. I have a very strong back ground in both gen ed and special education. All throughout college I was a speech and occupational therapy tech and my family owns Reeves Rehab in San Angelo, Texas. I am triple certified with General Education, ESL and Special Education certifications. My mother would say I was born to be a teacher and I would have to agree!
I am originally from a VERY small town outside of San Angelo, Texas. After high school I went on to play basketball at Sul Ross State University and then later graduated from Angelo State University in 2005. I have taught in Killeen ISD, Plano ISD, Dallas ISD and this will be my fourth year teaching in Lovejoy ISD.
My husband and I just had our first child, Austin. He is almost 8 months old and is the light of our life. I am excited about the opportunity to co-teach with Mrs. Parker and Mrs. Alford this year!
