Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Jill Koeppe

Welcome to my teacher page.  I am excited to be a part of the Carpenter community.  I have experience teaching with a variety of age groups, from Head Start preschool to fifth grade.  I have a Bachelor of Arts in Language Arts, and I am certified in Elementary (K-5), and Early Childhood (Pre-K through Kindergarten).  

Before coming to Carpenter, I worked in Early Childhood, and Special Education.  This is my fourth year at Carpenter, and I love teaching Second Grade.  I am committed to empowering academic excellence and teaching with:  integrity, innovation, collaboration and creativity.  I love to nurture positive learning experiences, and help students grow and surpass their learning potential.  Teaching discovery and living science, language arts, and hands-on mathematics is a special interest of mine.  I love to create a dynamic learning environment, and encourage problem-solving and cooperative learning in the classroom.  

Even though I have a long commute to work, both of my students have been Carpenter Cougars.  My daughter, Jiliang, is currently in Ms. Drummer's Fourth Grade class.  My son, Thomas, recently graduated from Carpenter. He is now in middle-school.  

Go Cougars!
